Join Portland Audubon’s Education Team for The Bird Days of Summer, a series of super beginner-friendly programs for anyone curious about birds in nature. We’re combining community-building, exploration, and fun to create safe spaces for people to get to know each other as well as the birds. Binoculars will be provided, and we’ll begin each program with a short “how-to” to help you get started.

- Pay What You Can: $0-$25 Sliding Scale
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!
