1st Saturday Bird Walk at the Willamette Confluence Preserve

April 2 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

Willamette River Eugene
Our First Saturday Bird Walks, created in celebration of the Lane Audubon Inclusivity and Diversity Statement, are reserved for women, BIPOC, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Birders of all levels and backgrounds are welcome to join, particularly those who may have felt intimidated at the thought of birding alone or on other guided walks. Masks and distancing may still be required throughout walks, depending on evolving COVID-safety guidelines. Participation continues to be limited due to the ongoing pandemic, so please email Bex at fieldtrips@laneaudubon.org to sign up for any of these walks.

Directions:

From I-5 from the South: Take the 30th Avenue (LCC) exit and proceed straight at the stop sign.
From I-5 from the North: Take the 30th Avenue (LCC) exit, at the first stoplight, stay to the right, heading south on the road paralleling the freeway, approximately 3/4 mile to another stoplight. Turn left and cross over I-5. Turn left again at the stop sign.
Take the first right just past the Shell gas station onto Franklin Boulevard. (Hwy 99). Go under the railroad bridge. Take the next left onto Seavey Loop Road. Continue east about 2 miles. Cross the bridge spanning the Coast Fork of the Willamette River, entering Howard Buford Recreation Area (Lane County Park). Turn left following signs for the North Bottomlands and proceed a 1/4 mile to a gravel parking area. The group will meet at this parking lot.  Important: All vehicles will need a Lane County Parking Pass. Daily passes are available online and from a machine near the Mount Pisgah Arboretum in the south end of the park.

Program Meetings

Our monthly program meetings have something for everyone. During the last year we hosted programs by naturalists, wildlife artists and expert birders on a variety of topics from the birds of Hawaii, to ravens, wolves, and people, to the migration of red knots. Participating in a program meeting is a fun way to get involved with Lane County Audubon. Meetings are free and open to all.

We are currently meeting on Zoom and in-person as conditions allow on the 4th Tuesday of each month between September and May at 7:00 p.m.
