Sanctuaries and Trails
Connect with nature at Audubon sanctuaries and visitor areas
The Audubon Society of Portland’s sanctuaries and visitor areas provide many opportunities to enjoy and learn about nature, from meeting our education birds to taking a guided nature walk at our East-side Branch.
Our 150-acre nature sanctuary in northwest Portland is open daily from dawn to dusk. Get an up-close look at native wildlife while exploring its 4 miles of forested trails, or visit our education birds, who live on-site at the Wildlife Care Center.
Please note: The December winter storms brought down many trees at the sanctuary so until further notice, only the Woodpecker, Old Growth Forest, and Jay trails are currently open.
Enjoy classes, walks, presentations and youth summer camps at our east Portland-metro branch, located at Leach Botanical Garden near Gresham.
