The Bird Days of Summer: BIPOC Fly Fits Bird Walk

This event is reserved for adults who are a part of the BIPOC community. 

Show up in your flyest bird themed fits wearing your favorite bird tees, socks, hats, accessories, whatever you’ve got! We’ll spend some time birdwatching at Smith and Bybee Wetlands and connect over cool drinks to enjoy each other’s fly fits.

We will walk on a paved, mostly flat trail for about 2 miles. Expect partial shade and some full sun along the trails. First timers and beginners are welcome! Binoculares will be provided. Registration for this event is through People of Color’s POCO’s Meetup Page.

  • 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!
