Winter Bird Seed Sale – Save 20% on all varieties
Saturday, December 7
(Pre-orders due Wednesday, November 27)
December is the month when the heaviest bird feeder traffic begins as days become windy and cold, and nights are long and even colder. Birds may find it especially challenging to find food on days of such extreme temperatures.
This is the time when it is particularly important to fill feeders and keep them filled. Knowledgeable staff are always on hand in the Nature Store to advise and answer any questions.
Have your favorite bird seed ready on sale day by filling out our pre-order form (pre-orders due Wednesday, November 27).
Beautiful John James Audubon Artwork Sale — Proceeds to Benefit the Center at Fairfield
For a limited time, John James Audubon Amsterdam Edition prints of North American birds will be for sale with all proceeds benefitting the Center at Fairfield’s conservation and environmental education programs.
These are the finest limited edition facsimiles of the single greatest ornithological work ever produced and printed: the Havell edition of Audubon’s Birds of America. A museum in Holland bought their copy from Audubon’s son in 1839, which was used to produce these color lithographs. In 1972, a Dutch printing firm printed each plate in up to eight different colors on handmade rag paper exactly as the originals, giving these prints the same look and feel as the original Havell edition.
Now, for a limited time, a selection of these prints are available for purchase. Please click here to view catalog. For further information or to arrange a private viewing, call the Center at Fairfield’s Nature Store at 203-259-6305 ext. 109.

A Year in Botanical Art 2020 Calendar
Enjoy the beauty and spirit of a different botanical print each month of the year.
From the artist, ” The paintings draw on Eastern and Western botanical traditions. I work in a range of styles, from spontaneous Oriental brush painting to highly realistic botanical painting. I feel a profound connection with the plants as I work with them, and it is my goal to bring others to that same intimate relationship with nature.”
The calendar is printed on 11” x 17” smooth, cream colored card stock and bound with a white wire binding.
