Field Trip: Whitaker Ponds with Brodie Cass Talbott *FULL*

Whitaker Ponds is one of industrial Portland’s success stories: a literal dump rehabbed into one of the birdiest hotspots in the city. We’ll spend a few hours enjoying the sounds of a variety of songbirds, waterfowl, woodpeckers, and hopefully some raptors as well. These trips focus specifically on identifying these birds by their songs and calls.

*Meeting location will be emailed to you by your leader several days before the field trip.

Limited to 10 participants.

This outdoor program will require masks and follow all physical distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration. Scroll down for details.

$45 – $65
