Who can attend?

Audubon Society of Portland members and the general public are invited to attend our volunteer-led field trips. People with all levels of natural history experience, from beginning to expert, are welcome. Our volunteers love to bird and to share their enjoyment and knowledge with others.  


While there is no fee for our field trips, we expect participants to carpool and share costs with the driver. Carpooling is encouraged for conservation of energy resources and enhanced sociability. Wear your binoculars so people can identify you, especially when the leader will not be present.
