Accessible Birding Outing at Whitaker Ponds
Join Portland Audubon for an accessible birding outing at Whitaker Ponds! Fall/winter waterfowl season is just starting, so we’ll look for a good number of duck species as well as songbirds, woodpeckers, and perhaps even some raptors. Together we’ll make our way through the natural area by foot or by wheelchair, observing and learning about birds, plants, and other wildlife.
We welcome all people who identify as disabled, neurodivergent, and/or chronically ill, as well as their family, friends and/or caregivers. This outing is made for and led by birders with disabilities. Beginning birders are welcome! Extra binoculars will be available.
Register: Click to Register. Limited to 12 participants.
Trip Leaders: Ali Berman, Tara Lemezis, Camelia Zollars
Masks: Masks are now optional at our outdoor events. However, we’ll check in with each participant in advance in case anyone who is immunocompromised needs to be in a masked environment. We also recognize that some people can’t wear masks due to their disability. Physical distancing will be required.
