Register By Phone, Mail or Email
To register by phone, mail or email, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Get your name on the class roster
By phone: 971-222-6119
By email: email@example.com
If this is your first time taking an Audubon class, be sure to provide complete contact information: full name(s), phone, email, mailing address, member or non-member status. If you've registered for a class before, then no need to repeat all of your contact information.
A note about lecture-style classes:
If the class is lecture-style only (e.g., all of Harry Nehls' classes) there will almost always be enough seats, and up to the week prior you are safe simply mailing or calling in your payment and information (Step 2).
A long-standing tradition of drop-in-and-pay-at-the-door is also honored for these types of classes, so if you learn about the class at the last minute, don't let that stop you but DO CALL TO CONFIRM THERE IS ROOM! Rarely, sign-ups exceed our capacity for seating but it has been known to happen when an unusual or infrequently offered class is scheduled. If dropping in, either pay the person checking people in when you arrive, or pay at the Nature Store. Please arrive early.

Payment is required to secure your place in the class. It is in
everyone's best interest to pay your class fee promptly. If payment

Payment And Cancellation Policy For Adult Classes
Full payment is expected for a class upon registration. If participants need to cancel, their enrollment cancellations must be received in writing (email OK) TWO WEEKS prior to the class in order to receive a full refund. If cancellation notice is received less than 2 weeks from the class date then a full refund minus $10 processing fee can be given IF the vacancy can be filled from a wait list. If it cannot be filled from a wait list then the entire amount is forfeited.
If the Audubon Society of Portland needs to cancel a program due to low enrollment, participants will be given as much advance notification as possible and a full refund. The Audubon Society of Portland reserves the right to cancel classes due to inclement weather or instructor illness up to the date of the class, in which case a full refund will also be given.
