Let's Go Birding!

Learn the basics of the treasure that is birding, with Oregon State Parks

Do you have an appreciation for birds and want some experience on how best to see them? Or are you an experienced birder wanting to help with bird surveys? Then Let’s Go Birding is for you! On our introductory walk, we’ll help you understand binoculars – from choosing sizes and magnifications to proper use. We’ll also give you some birding tips and techniques to help you become better acquainted with our feathered friends. Birding is also a great opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy nature! Binoculars and guide books are provided. Please bring your own water and sunscreen, dress appropriately for the weather, and wear good hiking shoes. Ages 8 years old and above welcome (children 8-14 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian).
