about

We love wild birds

That's why we created Raven Tree – Northern California's wild bird and nature center. We stock everything for wild bird and nature enthusiasts: seed, houses, feeders, gifts, optics, books – even bat houses.

 

Not only is our seed competitively priced, we are Northern California’s only source of bulk wild bird seed. And we offer the kind of expert advice that always puts the right birdseed, house, field guide or gift in your hands (and your yard).

Our goal isn’t simply to move several tons of birdseed. We want to educate, inform and enthuse you – and your children, who are probably fascinated by birds. 

Setting up a feeder is one of the easiest – and best – ways to get your kids interested in the outdoors.

Simply put, we share your love for wild birds. So look for our upcoming trips, classes and gatherings – all designed to help you (and your kids) learn about wild birds.

More Than A Shop

When you shop at Raven Tree, you’re doing more than getting quality birding and nature products. You’re supporting a local business that is invested in the community, allowing us to grow and serve even more people (and wildlife!) Raven Tree is committed to environmentally friendly practices, education, and giving back to our friends and neighbors.

 

ECO-FRIENDLY CULTURE

As lovers of all things bird and nature, lessening our environmental impact is an important part of Raven Tree’s business model. Here are some of the ways we put our mission into action every day:

ecofriendlygiftwrap

  • We use recycled gallon jugs for seed sales, most of which are donated by local cafes and residents. Save your (clean and dry!) milk and water jugs and bring them in on your next visit to help with this green effort.
  • Our bags are paper instead of plastic, and we reuse or recycle as much packaging material as possible.
  • We offer eco-friendly, hand-stamped gift wrap, reducing the use of inks, dyes, and glossy paper.
  • By stocking as many local and USA-made goods as we can, we reduce the environmental impact of long-distance shipping and lessen our carbon footprint.

Raven Tree offers a variety of classes related to local birds and wildlife, as well as on-site talks and workshops at local schools, businesses, and community groups. Don’t  forget to sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date on upcoming classes and workshops!

In addition to supporting local charity auctions and events throughout the year, Raven Tree also hosts the following fundraisers:

Penny-A-Pound Program

For every pound of bird seed sold, Raven Tree donates 1¢ to Siskiyou Humane Society. So far we have raised over $500 to help homeless animals!

 

Annual Bird House Building Contest

Our Second Annual Bird House Building Contest is now OPEN! Winning entries become silent auction items to benefit the Siskiyou Land Trust. Last year we raised over $600 in the auction and expect to surpass our gift this year! Contact shop for entry guidelines and details.

 

 

 

THANK YOU
