Audubon Base Camp

Experience an unforgettable overnighter at our rustic cabin in the foothills of Mt. Hood. Groups will meet our Naturalists at the "Marmot Cabin" (near Sandy) and have the site to themselves as they explore a remote Wildlife Sanctuary.

Children will seek out signs of Beaver, Deer and Elk as they venture through the lush vegetation of a pristine riparian zone. Students learn to read animal sign, identify plants and interpret the landscape, honing their own naturalist skills along the way. After dinner, students will venture into the darkness in search of bats and owls (weather permitting), and return for an educational program on these nocturnal creatures. In the morning, children will get to learn even more about our native animals via a hands-on study of pelts, skulls and specimens. We will design a program that builds, expands and enhances your environmental curriculum. This is sure to be a night your students will talk about all year!

Audubon Camp-In

Nestled in the heart of Forest Park, the Audubon Society of Portland offers the ideal location for an overnight experience into nature without having to leave the city. Our Naturalists will meet the group at the Audubon Society of Portland, give an orientation to the site, then lead an exciting exploration of our 180-acre Wildlife Sanctuary, including its magnificent old-growth forest, streams and pond. Dinner will be served after the hike, followed by the Traveling Program of your choice. The group will have the site to itself for its evening activities, then snuggle into their sleeping bags for the night to wake up to the sounds of the forest in the morning. After breakfast, children will visit the Wildlife Care Center and learn how we take care of injured animals. Led by experienced Naturalists, this overnighter promises to be an unforgettable educational experience for all who attend.
