Diversity Statement

The Audubon Society of Portland believes that inspiring all people to love and protect nature is best achieved when we embrace diversity as a value and practice. In the same way an ecosystem needs many types of plants and wildlife, an organization thrives when it includes a diversity of people and perspectives. We recognize that inequities are widespread and create gaps between our present reality and our aspirations. Portland Audubon is committed to:

  • Reflecting the diversity of the community in our board, staff, volunteers, and members.
  • Ensuring our internal culture, business practices, and programs are welcoming and advance our diversity goals.
  • Empowering people to make positive changes in their community and environment.

Our Work

Conservation: We protect and advocate for birds and other wildlife in our city and across the region. We also work to ensure all Portland-area residents have easy access to nature.

Education: Our expert educators offer environmental camps, classes and trips for all ages.

Wildlife rehabilitation: Our Wildlife Care Center provides specialty care for native wild animals that are injured or orphaned. The center also answers inquiries about living with urban wildlife.

Sanctuaries: We run nature sanctuaries in the mountains, city and coast. They protect habitat, showcase healthy ecosystems, and provide places for people to connect with nature.

Birding: We help people of all ages and backgrounds get involved in birding by organizing a variety of birding and natural history activities.

Get Involved

Portland Audubon was founded 110 years ago by a group of conservationists. We are now a community of 14,000 who stand together to protect Oregon’s beautiful birds, wildlife and habitat. Join us by becoming a member, donating or volunteering.
