Sandy River Delta Bird Walk
July 9 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
With 1,400 acres of open field, wetlands, blackberry bushes, countless trails, and two rivers, this park is popular with birders! A part of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, the park was once the site of an aluminum factory, and it was more recently used for grazing cattle. Once under jurisdiction of the Forest Service, effort has been made to restore the property to its native estuary wetland ecosystem, and remove invasive plant species. Why not join naturalist Elaine Murphy on a walk around this welcoming place for wild birds and other wildlife?
We’ll meet at the Northeast Portland Backyard Bird Shop (1419 N.E. Fremont Ave.) at 8:00 a.m. and then carpool to the start of the walk. The walk will last 2 – 3 hours. Advance reservations are required—we limit the number of participants to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and educational experience. Some of our walks do fill up, so phone the Portland shop (503-445-2699) to reserve your spot as soon as you can! Dress for the weather, and, please, no pets!
