Marmot Cabin Facilities
Students and teachers who join us at Marmot Cabin spend their days exploring and learning within the Miller Wildlife Sanctuary. Each school group is given exclusive access to the sanctuary.
Our newly built 3,200 square foot cabin offers a large educational space, one-of-a-kind geological fireplace, commercial kitchen, adult sleeping quarters, and ADA access. Students sleep in our two 30-foot yurts fitted with bunk beds.
About Marmot Cabin and the Miller Wildlife Sanctuary
Joe and Amy Miller donated Marmot Cabin and the Miller Wildlife Sanctuary to Portland Audubon in the 1970s to help inspire the next generation to love and protect the natural world. Students sleep in our two 30-foot yurts and learn in both our forest and our 3,200 square foot cabin offers a large education space, commercial kitchen, adult sleeping quarters, and is ADA accessible.

Every major forest species of animal found west of the Cascades either inhabits or travels through the 91-acre sanctuary thanks to our meadow, old growth and secondary growth forest, and creek habitats. You might hear or see Pileated Woodpecker, Swainson’s Thrush, Great Horned Owl, Coastal Giant Salamander, Northwest Garter Snake, American Beaver, Mule Deer, Mountain Beaver, Roosevelt Elk, Coyote, Bobcat, Mountain Lion and the American Black Bear.
