Birdseed for Sale at the Schrader Center!

Birdseed is back at the Schrader Center! And not just any old birdseed. Our seed is made from the stuff birds love to eat! We have premium quality ingredients at the best possible prices. Our seeds do not include fillers or pesticides. Our staff has worked to develop special mixes that are guaranteed to attract birds to your backyard feeder.

Oglebay Best:  ($25/25# bag) — A mix of black oil sunflower, white millet, striped sunflower and safflower seeds.

Oglebay Divine: ($25/25# bag) — A mix of the same seeds, plus peanut chunks. Our specialty mixes will attract birds like blue jays, chickadees, cardinals, finches, grosbeaks, juncos, sparrows, nuthatches, titmice and woodpeckers.

Black Oil Sunflower: ($20/25# bag) — The #1 choice for backyard birds and is high in quality proteins and essential oils.

Nyjer Thistle: ($15/10# bag & $30/25# bag) — Imported from Asia and Africa. This tiny, black seed is heat sterilized to prevent seed germination. It is a favorite of finches with its high calorie count and oil content.

Sunflower Chips: ($35/25# bag) — The only true no waste, no mess feed available. With almost no shell, you get more feed per pound and no messy hulls to clean up.

Suet Cakes in peanut, wild bird and woodpecker blends: ($1.25/11oz) — The suet cakes consist of rendered beef fat and a mix of seeds, grains and vitamins. These are our most affordable feeding option for birds.

Squirrel Snacks ($6.00/3oz) — Keep the squirrels happy, too this winter!

Over the years, we’ve learned that the better the seed, the more fun you’ll have watching the birds, and your annual bird feeding costs will be lower. We also offer feeders to hold the seed, field guides to identify the bird types in your backyard and binoculars and spotting scopes to help you see the birds up close.

Plus, Oglebay Institute members get a 15% discount! The annual Oglebay Institute bird seed sale has been a tradition for more than 50 years, and the proceeds support environmental education programming for Ohio Valley schools. Stop by and pick up birdseed for your backyard birds. Located in Oglebay Park, the Schrader Center is open 10am-5 pm, Monday though Saturday and noon-5pm, Sundays through December. Call us at 304-242-6855 for more information.


Enviro Book Club to Discuss The Sacred Vision

Join the Environmental Book Club Thursday evening, October 18, 2012 for coffee and a discussion on The Sacred Vision: Native American Religion and Its Practice Today by Michael Steltenkamp.  The Sacred Vision is a personal venture into Native American Religion by the author. It is useful for anyone inquiring to where spirituality may lead them; specifically into Native American culture from an outsider’s perspective and as a useful gauge of the culture as of the 1980’s, in the pre-casino era.

We meet at 7pm at the Schrader Center in Oglebay Park, Wheeling WV, typically on the upper floor. Check out our blog at www.ecobookclub.wordpress.com  for past discussions and future books.   Hope to see you there!
