What you'll do

Birdwatching at Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge

We'll meet at Sellwood Park early in the morning and start exploring Portland's first Wildlife Refuge and first migratory bird park. We'll make a gentle, slow-paced 1.3 mile loop through the wetlands and I'll show you my favorite spots to see egrets, waterfowl, great blue herons, bald eagles and other songbirds.
