Croton Arboretum
Feed the Birds, the local source for everything related to wild-birds, as well as unique, American-made gift items, is supporting the Arboretum through the sale of reusable shopping bags emblazoned with our logo and the words “We Support the Croton Arboretum.” Feed the Birds is selling the bags for $6.00 each and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Arboretum.

The bags are made of Non-Woven Polypropylene (NWPP), a fabric that is recyclable, non-toxic, non-allergenic, and machine washable. They can be purchased at Feed the Birds, 326 South Riverside Avenue, Croton-on-Hudson from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

“One of the reasons we opened Feed the Birds in Croton was the area’s strong interest in nature-related activities,” said store owner Rob Armanini. “Being the local nature shop, one of the obvious things for us to do was join the Arboretum. We quickly realized they are funded entirely by donations, and the importance of those donations became even more evident when several storms caused some significant damage last fall. We wanted to help, in an on-going capacity and we’re proud to be supporting Croton's very own natural treasure."
