Audubon's work to protect urban wildlife and to ensure access to nature for all residents.
The Portland metropolitan region is home to a rich variety of wildlife and an incredible network of natural areas. Audubon is collaborating with local communities to protect these urban wildlife populations and ensure access to nature for all residents.
Bird Safe Cities
Portland's location in the Pacific Flyway brings 209 species of both migrant and resident birds into our airspace. Many are then drawn into the urban landscape, where they face an insidious hazard that kills millions of birds annually: window glass. Learn about ways to reduce bird-window strikes.
Access to Nature
Regreening Portland, the Intertwine Alliance, Wild in the City: Exploring the Intertwine, and more.
Portland Audubon is working throughout the metropolitan region to restore rivers and islands. Current projects include West Hayden Island and the Willamette Superfund site.
The City of Portland is currently updating its Comprehensive Plan, the land use plan for the City that will guide future growth and development over the next twenty years. It is absolutely critical that the community engage directly in the Comprehensive Plan process to ensure that good decisions are made.
