March 29 (Thu) 6:30am-4pm: Hiking and Birding at Catherine Creek


A diverse array of birds and wildflowers, stunning views and fascinating geology: Catherine Creek has it all!  We'll hike through multiple habitat types as we look and listen for raptors and songbirds, including several early spring migrants. Trails can be steep and muddy in places; sturdy footwear and appropriate outerwear required.

Meet at 6:30am at the south end of the Gatewey/NE99th transit center in Northeast Portland (located here).
Leader: Candace Larson
Fee: $60
Limited to 10 participants



April 22 (Sun) 6:30am-2pm: Spring Migration on Gresham Buttes (Conservation focused)

Hop from Butte to Butte as we follow spring migrants as they touch down on protected habitat in Gresham and East Portland to refuel as they move north. It will be a great opportunity to catch the spring migration of several warbler species, and learn about the history of how these upland habitats were protected over the years. The trip will stop at several natural areas, protected and maintained by Metro, the City of Gresham, and the City of Portland. There will be opportunities to explore these sites on short out and back hikes of moderate slope and distances, so please wear appropriate footwear. We will be stopping at a location with restrooms facilities for lunch around 11:30 AM, so please bring a water bottle and pack a lunch. 

Meet at 6:30 am at the Gateway/NE 99th Ave TC Park & Ride; 1321 NE 99th Ave, Portland, 97220. We will be carpooling together in two Audubon vans. 
Leaders: Dan Van Den Broek and Micah Meskel

March 31 (Sat) 6am - 6pm: Streaked Horned Lark Expedition (Conservation focused) 

Explore Streaked Horned Lark hotspots in the mid-Willamette valley. We’ll visit breeding territories where we may see them performing aerial displays and talk with local experts about the conservation and recovery plan of the Willamette valley’s only federally listed songbird. We’ll spend the day birding the Finley National Wildlife Refuge and other location as time allows.
Leaders: Stefan Schlick and Joe Liebezeit
Fee: $60
