Field Trip: Mount Talbert Nature Park

This woodland oasis in the Sunnyside area of Clackamas protects 200 acres on an extinct cinder-cone volcano. Join Dan van den Broek in searching for Hutton’s Vireo and White-breasted Nuthatch as well as early migrants such as Orange-crowned Warbler. The trail climbs through coniferous forest, oak woodland and a small native prairie.

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.
