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

Experience birding Topaz Farm on Sauvie Island!

On this night for beginner bird watchers, 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 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.
