Festival of the Birds - April 25, 2013

Join us on May 11 for the 2013 Festival of the Birds at Sellwood Parkand Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge.

 

Portland Parks & Recreation is partnering up with US Fish and Wildlife to host this celebration in honor of migratory birds. Families and bird lovers get the chance to spend the day outdoors learning about birds.

 

Oaks Bottom Refuge is an important spot for migrating birds. Birds get the opportunity to nest and re-fuel from traveling distances as far away asArgentina. Oaks Bottom is Portland’s first Migratory Bird Park!

 

At the event you can participate in guided bird walks, enjoy live music and stories, kid’s games, see live birds from the Audubon society and experience much more “bird-oriented” activities.
