Our mission is to create magic and adventure through the love and experience of nature. In order to bring this mission to reality, we strive not just to be the best "general store for nature lovers" but also to be "not just a store but a community resource." We support and work closely with many partners in the environmental arena.
We offer a complete line of products to help you enjoy wild birds and foster a healthy backyard habitat.
Los Gatos Birdwatcher is partnering with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties to bring hope, relief and security to our neighbors struggling with hunger. Our food drive will help the Food Bank stock their pantries for Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays. We will have a collection bin ready to receive your donation of meals in a can (stew, chili, soup), peanut butter, 100% fruit juices, low sugar cereals, tuna or canned meat and canned fruits and vegetables.
Small Business Saturday encourages everyone to do their holiday shopping at small, local businesses like the Los Gatos Birdwatcher. It is also the day we will kick-off our one year anniversary celebration! That’s right — December 1st marks my one year anniversary as owner of the Los Gatos Birdwatcher. While the store is celebrating 21 years at the Kings Court Shopping Center, I took over last December when Freddy & John retired. In celebration of the anniversary and a thank you to all our customers, we have an exciting raffle planned. For every $10 you spend between Nov. 26–Dec. 1 you will receive a raffle ticket. We will have special raffle packages displayed throughout the store & you decide how to use your tickets. We will pick the winners on Friday, Dec. 2. Raffle items include a binocular-birder raffle package, a children’s nature package, a hummingbird feeder package, a bird feeder package and a bird house package.
