The Bird Days of Summer: BATS!

Join Bird Alliance of Oregon educators Brodie and Chris for a celebration of our little flying mammals on a summer evening at Whitaker Ponds. We’ll seek to demystify bats, as we search for them and try identifying them using a Bat Detector.

We will time our visit for evening, when they are most active, so make sure to bring a flashlight or headlamp. Binoculars might be helpful, so bring a pair if you have one, or let us know and we will be happy to bring a pair for you. A full email of what to expect will be sent out one week prior to the event. 


Distance: 1 mile ( For complete site description, visit the birdability page.)
Elevation Changes: none
Trail Tread and Width:Trails are flat, and typically 4-6 feet wide with gravel tread. There are two wooden ramps with gentle pitch down to the pond and the slough.
Exposure: Full in in some parts, shade in others
Pacing: Slow, with frequent stops to view and listen for birds.
 There is one ADA accessible portapotty at the site.
Public Transit: TriMet bus #75
Rest Stops: None, but we will move slowly


Join Bird Alliance of Oregon’s Education and Conservation Team for The Bird Days of Summer, a series of free, super beginner-friendly programs for anyone curious about birds in nature. We’re combining community-building, exploration, and fun to create safe spaces for people to get to know each other as well as the birds. Binoculars will be provided, and we’ll begin each program with a short “how-to” to help you get started.
