Saturday, December 13th
Join us at Big Four Corners Natural Area along the main stem of the Columbia Slough (see directions below). This is Portland's 4th biggest Natural Area and provides 165 acres of wetland, woodland, waterway and rare white oak habitat. We'll be engaging in some good ol' invasive species removal around some of the public hiking trails. Come donning your sturdiest shoes and, if grey cloud loom above, that favorite yellow slicker. Refreshments will be provided.

Date: Saturday, December 13th

Time: 9:00am - 12:00pm

109th Annual
Christmas Bird Count
Saturday, January 3rd, 2009
Join the Audubon Society of Portland, Columbia Slough Watershed Council staff, and other supporters for this year's Christmas Bird Count! This historic event is organized each year for intrepid bird lovers to collect annual data. Information from the CBC is used by the Audubon Society to help track bird migrations and population changes. You can help by driving, recording numbers, and identifying bird species.

***Last year's Eagle Eye Award was won by our own North Portland team, for spotting an osprey catching a carp at Whitaker Ponds! Could it be your team this year??
