Portland Audubon’s Nature Night Speakers Series is committed to presenting entertaining and expert talks on natural history, wildlife, and conservation issues. Nature Night is a chance for the community to engage with naturalists, authors, artists, enthusiasts, and activists about issues that affect the world around us. With topics ranging from coastal geology of the Pacific Northwest to public land preservation to night owl photography, there is a talk for everyone. Our series takes place on the second Tuesday of the month, September through May (unless otherwise noted).
