Oaks Bottom Bird Walk
August 18 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am
Portland is known as a livable city but fish and wildlife find it livable too thanks to places like Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge! Join expert naturalist Elaine Murphy as she takes you on a free bird walk through Portland’s own urban wildlife refuge. This free nature walk is hosted by the Lake Oswego (Lower Boones Ferry Rd. area) location of Backyard Bird Shop.
Its location at the base of Oaks Bluff and next to the Willamette River’s Holgate Slough and Ross Island result in rich and varied habitat: uplands, wetland, riparian, and open water. And that means great bird watching!
We’ll meet at the Lake Oswego Backyard Bird Shop at 8 a.m. 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 please phone the shop (503-620-7454) to reserve your spot as soon as you can. Dress for the weather! And, please, no pets!
