Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve Bird Walk
May 5 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Jackson Bottom’s 635 acres of open waters, wetland areas, upland forests and meadow provide habitat for more than 130 bird species that reside and migrate through our area annually. Join naturalist and educator Elaine Murphy on a free educational walk around Jackson Bottoms to look for Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Tundra Swans, Northern Pintails and many other bird species! Also watch for river otter, beaver, deer as well as frogs, snakes and salamanders. It is truly a testament to the vision and persistence of the City of Hillsboro and others who continue to support and restore this wonderful area!
To accompany Elaine on the bird walk, we ask that you register in advance by phoning the Beaverton shop at 503-626-0949. We’ll meet at the Beaverton Backyard Bird Shop (11429 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy, Beaverton) at 8:00 a.m. to 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 shop (503-626-0949) to reserve your spot as soon as you can! Dress for the weather, and, please, no pets!
