The Bird Days of Summer: Bike & Bird – Slough Run with FBC.PDX

Grab your bikes and join us and our friends from FBC.PDX for a relaxing, early morning ride that takes you through Vanport Wetlands, Raceway Ponds, Smith and Bybee Wetlands, and Force Lake. We will be biking at a birders’ (read: SLOW) pace that will allow us all to see and enjoy, and seek out some special species you might not have spotted before.

This event is reserved for people who identify as BIPOC, queer, and or disabled, neurodivergent, or chronically ill. Beginner birders this event is also reserved for you, join in!

Meet at Delta/Vanport Park and Ride at around 8 a.m. where we will start a 8-mile loop that will take us back to Delta Park. Bring water, snacks, lock, helmet and comfy shoes. Beginners are welcomed, and binoculars will be provided (please let us know ahead of time!). This event is open to birders of all levels, especially to people new to Bird Alliance of Oregon!
