Morning Explorers: Stream Life & Critter Catch
Every Wednesday in August, Portland Audubon is offering special, guided activities at our Sanctuary for kids age 2nd-5th. See wildlife, engage in hands-on activities and explore everything that the forest has to offer. If you like walking through the woods and getting your hands dirty, we hope to see you there!
In Stream Life & Critter Catch we’ll explore the creek, attempt to catch newts and other salamanders, and investigate the creek health through the organisms living in it!
*This all outdoor program is limited to a maximum of six children, and will follow all social distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration. Please see below.
