Audubon Birding Day: Ankeny & Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuges with Brodie Cass Talbott *2 spots left*

Winter is a wonderful time for birding the Willamette Valley, with bountiful waterfowl, stunning raptors, and curious sparrows. We’ll spend the day investigating a variety of habitats in these two close-to-Portland refuges.

Bring lunch and dress for the weather. You will drive yourself for the day. Brodie will reach out with further details before the trip. 

Trip limited to 10 participants. 

This outdoor program will follow all physical distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration. Masks required. Please feel free to bring your own spotting scope if you have one. Scroll down for details.
