Sanctuaries and Trails

Connect with nature at Audubon sanctuaries and visitor areas.

Portland Audubon - Nature SanctuaryThe Audubon Society of Portland’s sanctuaries and visitor areas provide many opportunities to enjoy and learn about nature, from meeting our education birds to taking a guided nature walk at our East-side Branch.

Audubon Sanctuary
Our 150-acre nature sanctuary in northwest Portland is open daily from dawn to dusk. Get an up-close look at native wildlife while exploring its 4 miles of forested trails, or visit our education birds, who live on-site at the Wildlife Care Center.

Please note: All trails except South Collins Trail are open. South Collins Trail remains closed due to a late winter landslide. We will be working throughout the next few months to re-route the trail around the slide and continue to improve and repair Portland Audubon's trail systems.

No dogs are allowed on Portland Audubon's sanctuaries trails, please. Birds and other animals have keen senses of sight, smell, and hearing; they think of dogs – even the friendliest ones – as predators. We also know that people see more wildlife in natural areas where dogs are not allowed.

East-side Branch
Enjoy classes, walks, presentations and youth summer camps at our east Portland-metro branch, located at Leach Botanical Garden near Gresham.

Ten Mile Creek Sanctuary
This stretch of temperate rainforest on the Oregon coast is a site of extraordinary ecological importance. School and professional groups can visit Ten Mile Creek by appointment.
