Nature Center Plans Holiday Bird Seed Sale

Don't forget our feathered friends this winter and holiday season.

The MK Nature Center's sixth annual Holiday Bird Seed Sale will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, December 1.

Stock up on winter bird seed and find that special gift for the outdoor person on your list. Purchase premium bird seed in 5-, 20- or 40-pound bags. Other items for sale include quality bird feeders, nature books, apparel, jewelry and children's gifts. Many of the items are made in Boise.

This year bring your children to visit Santa Claus and to make a free wildlife-related craft the whole family can enjoy. Time for the craft making and visiting Santa will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Nature Center will charge $5 to visit Santa and sit on his lap while parents take their child's picture, with an additional $3 if the Nature Center staff takes the picture.

All proceeds from the sale benefit Nature Center educational programs. The sale is presented by Idaho Fish and Game's MK Nature Center and Wild Birds Unlimited. The MK Nature Center is behind Fish and Game headquarters at 600 South Walnut, Boise.
