Join Portland Audubon’s Education and Conservation Teams for The Bird Days of Summer, a series of free, 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 can be provided upon request, and we’ll begin each program with a short “how-to” to help you get started.
