Lisa Hill

A paradise of unimaginable beauty, Colombia is the most biodiverse country on earth by area. Per square kilometer, Colombia has more species of just about everything in the plant and animal kingdoms than any other country. Join Lisa Hill as she shares incredible images of birds, butterflies, animals and plants from a recent birding tour she and her husband Larry Umthun took to the high elevation slopes and deep valleys of the Andes Mountains. A stunning rainbow of brightly-colored hummingbirds and tanagers will lift your spirits and fill you with wonder.

Columbia Grain and Feed, 2001 W Lewis St., Pasco 509-547-8818

For the last 20 years, Columbia Grain and Feed has been a huge supporter of LCBAS. They work to purchase seed in large quantities at this time of year and pass the savings on to you, and then they make a large donation to LCBAS. Unless the bird seed market changes, this sale will have the lowest prices for the year. Buy now for easy storage through the winter!

NO MORE ORDER FORMS!! Hurray! Call Columbia Grain and Feed to place your order. Curbside pick-up is available if desired. Call them upon arrival at 509-547-8818 and they will load your order.

Prices are now available, and listed on page 5 of the Curlew. Please call the store if you have questions. The staff is very accommodating. Large bags too heavy? Buy the whole bag (for the best per pound price) and they will break it down into smaller bags.

Remember: ANY purchase during the year benefits LCBAS if you mention our name at checkout! This sale is still likely the best prices. Thank you for your support of LCBAS.
