Explorador Summer Camps

Explorador Campers
Explorador Campers

To reach students who have limited access to environmental education, Portland Audubon has partnered with local organizations to provide free summer camps in a variety of Portland-metro neighborhoods. These programs have brought hands-on, nature-based education to hundreds of children. Campers learn about healthy watersheds, native wildlife, habitats, and backyard birds through exciting trips to nearby natural areas, wetlands, ponds, and parks, such as Smith and Bybee Lakes and Portland Audubon’s own sanctuary. Explorador also introduces campers to natural resource careers by working with Metro Naturalists, Park Rangers, and Audubon staff members.

Thanks to our partnerships with Bienestar Inc., ROSE Community Development, and Hacienda Community Development Corporation for their tireless energy and enthusiasm for providing opportunities, such as Explorador Summer Camps, for the greater community.

Thanks to Hoover Family Foundation, PGE Foundation, REI, Gray Family Foundation, The North Face Explore Fund, NW Natural, Templeton Foundation, Autzen Foundation, PacifiCorp, Clean Water Services, East Portland Action Plan Committee, Juan Young, Keen and private donors for their generous support of community-based summer camps.
