Free Outings

Join us for a free outing!

Portland Audubon offers free, volunteer-led outings across the Portland Metro Area year-round. We strive to create a vibrant space for everyone to enjoy the birds and wildlife of our area.

Most of our outings are bird walks. Beginners are welcome and loaner binoculars and field guides available upon advance request. We do offer other types of walks and are looking to expand walk themes.

Bird Song Walks April through May

Each spring, Portland Audubon provides free Bird Song Walks every weekday in April and May led by local experts.

Join other birders, from young to old, beginner to expert, on these fun, guided walks through Portland’s best songbird habitat. Each location will have a weekly repeating walk so that participants can develop their birding by ear progressively with the arrival of new birds.
