Koll Center Wetlands Park Bird Walk
February 5, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am
Escape the winter doldrums with a Westside birding adventure to Koll Center Wetlands Park! Join naturalist Elaine Murphy and the hosting Backyard Bird Shop of Beaverton for a free tour of this unique area, a wildlife refuge as well as a high tech industrial site. There is the possibility of seeing river otters. Belted Kingfishers, and abundant waterfowl. In the winter you might see a Great Blue Heron, Great Egret in addition to Green-winged Teal, Common Merganser, and Northern Shoveler. In warmer seasons there is the likelihood for seeing up to four types of swallows as they fly about catching insects: Cliff, Barn, Violet-green and Tree Swallows.
Our guide requires everyone (even full-vaccinated people) to wear masks to participate in this walk.
To accompany Elaine on the bird walk, we ask that you register in advance by phoning the Beaverton shop at 503-445-2699, press 1. We’ll meet at the parking lot at 8:00 a.m. 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. Dress for the weather, and, please, no pets!
