The Bird Days of Summer: Accessible Sunday Perch at Laurelhurst Park *FULL*

Sit and sip while watching birds on this chill bird sit! There are all kinds of different ways we can watch and enjoy birds. Join Güero Bird Club, a club focused on chill vibes, good food and drinks, and birds, and Portland Audubon for an evening at Laurelhurst Park. We’ll spend most of our evening perched for some birding basics, a bird scavenger hunt, and birding by seat. Come to sit back, make new friends, and enjoy cool refreshments provided by Güero Tortas!

First timers and beginner birders are welcome and binoculars will be provided. Please BYO stool, camp chair, or cushion to make sitting more comfortable for you. Meet near the Laurelhurst Park restroom on the corner of SE Ankeny St.

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!
