The Backyard Naturalist store is now opened! We have new business hours.

Our Current Parking Lot Pickups Process

Our Store is Open for Shopping!!!

Pickups Continue as an Option,
But Process Has Been Simplified

Now that our store is open again, we’re updating our parking lot pickups, too! No more online order form or email orders are necessary. See our updated (and simplified) process below.

UPDATED: How to order and pick up

  1. During business hours, park behind our store and call 301-924-0024.
  2. Order anything you’d normally buy in our store. ( In-stock items may vary from those pictured on our website.)
  3. Stay in your car and pop the trunk.
  4. We take payment and load your order (with the receipt taped to it) into your car.

Current Business Hours:
Tuesdays – Saturdays: 10-6 pm
Sundays: 12-5 pm.
Mondays: Closed

See our homepage for upcoming holiday hours and closings.

Thank you for supporting your backyard birds (and our continuing efforts)!
