The Bird Days of Summer: Hike & Bird Little Crater Lake

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.

Brodie Cass Talbott and Candace Larson will guide you on a day of nature exploration in this very special landscape on the east side of Mt. Hood. Little Crater Lake is a unique, turquoise pool formed by a volcanic artesian spring, surrounded by meadows and forests. We’ll hike up to 6 miles as we investigate various habitats for a variety of late summer birds, butterflies and dragonflies.

Accessibility: Trail is mostly unpaved, well-graded with minimal elevation change, part sun and part shade. We will travel at a moderate pace, stopping frequently to look for birds and other wildlife; total distance will depend on what we see, but expect to hike about 6 miles, round trip.

Meeting Place and Timing: 8:30 a.m. to 3:00pm, plus commute (trailhead is about 100 minutes from Portland.) We will meet at 8:30 a.m. sharp at the Little Crater Lake Trailhead. A $10 day use pass, or NW Forest Pass is required for parking.

What to bring: Sturdy footwear (hiking boots or trail runners) is required. Make sure to bring plenty of water, snacks, and a sack lunch. Binoculars are recommended for watching wildlife.

Limited to 8 participants plus leaders.

  • 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!
