Bon Voyage to Vaux’s Swifts at Agate Hall
September 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This event was canceled due to smokey conditions and high temperatures.
Lane County Audubon Society will host two of its annual fall swift events outside Agate Hall at sunset on consecutive Fridays, September 9th and 16th. It is fun to observe the swifts before they fly off to Central and South America for the winter.
Vaux’s Swifts use the Agate Hall chimney to roost for the night as they gather prior to migration. We will be outdoors and well spread out to maintain social-distancing, so please be careful of your and other’s safety! We may see thousands of birds entering the chimney, but there is no guarantee!
Look for the LCAS banner at the north parking lot of Agate Hall. Stop by and enjoy this annual natural phenomenon. It’s free! And conveniently close to Prince Puckler’s Ice Cream, which is not free, but can be a low-cost addition to your evening’s fun and may entice reluctant family members and/or friends to come along.

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.
