Bird Seed Donations - January

Our feeder on the Dinosaur Garden lawn helps keep the Village of Liverpool’s feathered friends full come these colder months.

We’ll accept birdseed donations throughout January. We’ll take suet bells, too. Please make sure the seed and suet bells are securely packaged in a bag.

Our custodial staff will use the donated seed and bells to fill the feeder located adjacent to the Wildlife Habitat Garden on the Second Street side of the building.
