February

February 11: Join us for a Birding Walk! This is the first in a series of urban birding walks planned in the Portland, OR area to be led by Dr. Tom Virzi. Throughout 2017 we will be offering opportunities to explore some of the beautiful natural areas in the Portland Metro Area in search of birds. Come out and have some fun, help us catalog bird diversity, and maybe learn a little something new about the Rose City and its surroundings. The first walk is being held on Saturday morning at 8:00 am. Meeting place is the Taralon Clubhouse on the corner of SE 162nd Avenue and Taralon Drive in Happy Valley, OR. Bring binoculars (or we can lend you a pair) and shoes that can get muddy!
