Powell Butte Nature Park Bird Walk
September 18 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join naturalist Elaine Murphy and the hosting Backyard Bird Shop in Happy Valley for a free tour of this unique Portland natural area and discover the birds and wildlife of Powell Butte! One of Portland’s extinct volcanoes, Powell Butte features meadows, wild hawthorns and cedar groves, that provide a home to a variety of species.
This expert-guided walk amid the slopes of Powell Butte will cover slopes and meadows of Powell Butte so be prepared for some ascending to lofty views of resident and migrant songbirds and on clear days, Mt Hood.
To accompany Elaine on the bird walk, we ask that you register in advance by phoning the Happy Valley shop at 503-445-2699, press 6.
