Nature Store

The Nature Store – where all the profits are for the birds!

Portland Audubon is closely monitoring COVID-19 and assessing how we can help slow the virus. To help achieve that goal we have made the difficult decision to close down our Nature Store, Interpretive Center, and offices to the public. The decision to close our offices and reduce operations will help protect staff, volunteers, and the greater community by increasing physical distancing. We will continue to assess this dynamic situation as it evolves, prioritizing the health of our community.

During this time, the Nature Store would like to provide support and resources to our valued customers and members. Even though we are closed to the public, Nature Store staff will still be working in the store to best serve you. Our primary concern is for the health of our customers, staff, and volunteers.

We have reviewed the governor’s stay in place order, and are complying fully with the steps to keep our community safe. We are taking extra steps to sanitize merchandise, using gloves when packaging orders, and making sure we are physically distancing ourselves from customers when doing delivery or pick-ups.  Please keep in mind that these are new service offerings that will evolve based on our capacity.
