Field Trip: Cooper Mountain Nature Park

The slopes of Cooper Mountain, just south of Beaverton, are a great place to look for spring migrants. Among the meadow, oak woodland and mixed coniferous forest we hope to find Black-throated Gray Warbler, Orange-crowned Warbler and House Wren, while Vaux’s Swifts hunt for insects overhead.

Please dress for the weather. You will drive yourself for the day. Dan will reach out with further details before the trip. 

Trip limited to 9 participants (Metro properties limit groups to 10 total). 

This outdoor program will follow all physical distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration. Masks required. Please feel free to bring your own spotting scope if you have one. Scroll down for details.
