Did you notice you only see Turkey Vultures in Portland-Metro in the spring and summer? That’s because they migrate to warmer climates in the winter. Now it’s time to welcome them back! Around the world, vultures are facing hazards in the wild and their numbers are dwindling.  It’s up to us to help save and protect them!

Welcome Back Vulture Day is filled with fun and educational activities:

  • Vulture crafts and masks
  • Vulture-themed games
  • Storytelling
  • Nature Scavenger Hunt
  • Snacks and drinks
  • Meet Ruby, Portland Audubon’s Turkey Vulture, up close (along with our other education birds)
  • Compare your “wingspan” to a California Condor

Come and help us celebrate the beauty of vultures!

Cost: Free
Location: Nadaka Nature Park and St. Aidan’s Church 17405 NE Glisan St Portland, OR 97230
