Fernhill Wetlands Bird Walk
October 23 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am
Join naturalist and educator Elaine Murphy for a free educational bird walk around Fernhill Wetlands! This local treasure has undergone a large-scale wetland restoration project to enhance wildlife habitat. Waterfowl populations are daily in the thousands from November through March. Fall through Spring, see many birds including up to 17 species of shorebirds.
Viewing stands and trails at this birding hotspot are ideal for watching the thousands of migratory and wintering birds that use this wetland near the confluence of Gales Creek and the Tualatin River. Our expert-guided free bird walks are a great way to see and learn to recognize our local birds!
