Portland Audubon seeks to be as welcoming as possible to people with disabilities, as well as friends, families, and caregivers. See below for detailed information on each of our buildings, and our outdoor spaces to help you plan your visit. You can also visit Access Oregon for video and photographs of the accessibility of our facilities.


The parking lot has one ADA parking space. During peak visitor hours the parking is often limited, flowing into the gravel parking lot across the street and busy Cornell Road that does not have sidewalks. 


Portland Audubon House: The Portland Audubon House’s main floor is directly adjacent to the ADA parking space. This accessible building contains an Interpretive Center with active bird feeder viewing, Nature Store, and Heron Hall, a large room where most of our classes and on-site talks take place. There is also plenty of seating in these spaces.

The lower level of the Portland Audubon House can be accessed by an ADA compliant compact gravel path from the parking lot to the Bat Roost classroom. The Bat Roost is only open to education program participants.

Wildlife Care Center and Administrative Building: The public floor of the Administrative Office and the entire Wildlife Care Center are wheelchair accessible.

Breezeway: An accessible breezeway leads from the Portland Audubon House to the Administrative Building terminating in a sitting area with stairs leading down to gravel path. Educational Birds are often on view in the accessible breezeway, Interpretive Center, and parking lot.

Bathroom: The Interpretive Center has one all-user, ADA compliant, single occupancy restroom.


Paths around the facility are of varying terrain and lead to steep trails that are not easily accessible to folks in wheelchairs or with differing mobility. For more resources on trails that are more accessible in Portland, visit our Portland Birding Destinations page.
