The Bird Days of Summer: Dusk Bat Walk *FULL*

Join Erin and Brodie for a celebration of our little flying mammals on a summer evening at Mt. Tabor. We’ll seek to demystify bats, as we search for them and try identifying them using a special Bat Detector. We will time our visit for evening, when they are most active, so make sure to bring a flashlight or headlamp in order to make your way back. Binoculars might be helpful, so bring a pair if you have one, or let us know and we will be happy to bring a pair for you. 

A full email of what to expect will be sent out one week prior to the event.

About the Sliding Scale

Portland Audubon is excited to begin offering programs on a sliding scale. This will increase access to our programs and allow people of all economic backgrounds to explore their curiosity for the natural world. A sliding scale model will move us towards a more equitable, inclusive, and just community. 

In the spirit of community, we ask folks to pay it forward when they can. Your support will fund scholarships, as well as future free and low-cost programs. 

Thank you for helping Portland Audubon move towards a more equitable community for nature lovers of all backgrounds!
