The Bird Days of Summer: Birds & Bevvies at Topaz Farm *FULL*

Experience birding Topaz Farm on Sauvie Island! On this night for beginner birdwatchers, we will have special access to explore Topaz Farm, in areas typically not open to the public. We’ll end the night with a round of bird trivia and gather for great drinks and farm food for purchase. 

Sauvie Island hosts an amazing year round bird population and Topaz Farm’s regenerative farm provides a beneficial habitat for wildlife. During our special access walk along Topaz Farm we may see raptors, waterfowl, and swallows! Beginners are welcomed, and binoculars will be provided. We will meet in the Topaz Farm parking lot near the restrooms. 

Masks are optional on this outdoor program.

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!
