Audubon Birding Day: Upstream on the Columbia River with Brodie Cass Talbott *FULL*

Late fall along the dry side of the Columbia River is a great time to look for unusual species like loons, grebes, gulls, and raptors. We’ll visit a variety of habitats and hotspots from the mouth of the Deschutes River down to The Dalles. This is a self-driving trip and will start at Deschutes River Park and end in The Dalles. Make sure to bring lunch and come prepared for the weather.

Trip limited to 10 participants. 

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