Distance: Most of our stops will be stationary birding. Our last stop will involve a short walk of up to a half mile.
Elevation changes: None
Trail: The short walk will be along a dirt/gravel road.
Pacing: A birder’s pace (slow!)
Rest Stops: Two of our stops will have a bench if needed.
Sun Exposure: Partial (let’s hope for some sun!)
Amenities (bathrooms and parking): Portapotties at each location. Large parking lots at each location, but visitors must have an ODFW parking permit, which can be purchased online or at the small market on the island, or the 7-11 in Linnton. Your trip leader can try to help arrange carpooling.
Public transit: Trimet Bus 16 serves the Park & Ride at the entrance to the island. If you would like to take the bus to the island and carpool with someone in the group, please contact your trip leader and they can try to arrange this.
The new year is a great time to try something new! In this beginner-focused trip, we’ll visit Sauvie Island, the Portland area’s most storied birding location, and learn how to find and identify birds of prey, cranes, geese, songbirds and more.Register
