Multi-day trips to fascinating destinations with a focus on birds and general natural history of the area.
Domestic Ecotours offer an opportunity to get close to nature as you explore and learn about new habitats. Experienced Audubon Society of Portland leaders help you get the most out of your trip. Your travel dollar supports our education programs and a portion of your fee is a tax-deductible contribution to the Audubon Society of Portland.
We offer trips throughout Oregon, the western United States and
beyond. We typically travel in 15-passenger vans with 7-9 participants
per van. We have regular destinations offered nearly every year, such as Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and Steens Mountain, with new destinations added frequently.
