CANCELLED-Third Saturday Bird Outing

January 20 @ 7:45 am - 10:30 am

winter birders

This 3rd Saturday Outing has been cancelled due to the recent storm.  There may be damaged or fallen trees in the walk area. We plan to reschedule this outing later this spring when conditions are more favorable. Thanks for your understanding. February walk details will be posted in early February. See you then!

Willamette Confluence (usually not open to public access)

This McKenzie River Trust property is located just upstream of the confluence of the Middle & Coast Forks of the Willamette River, west and north of Mt. Pisgah. It is not open to public access at this time, but staff members Charlie Quinn & Sarah Merkle have volunteered to lead this outing to see the many birds that are benefiting from its restoration and protection. (Sarah also leads our First Saturday Inclusive Bird Outings, and we hope we’ll be able to get regulars from both Saturdays to attend!)
We will be walking primarily on relatively flat, wide gravel roads for 2-3 miles. There is one gradual rise of less than 100 feet and some spots of larger cobbles. One short detour is available via side trails, but is not required. There are a few larger logs and rocks, but no benches. There is a larger accessible porta potty at the internal parking area. Third Saturday Birding continues to be open to all participants.
Please arrive before 8:00 AM at the gated driveway immediately east of 33995 Seavey Loop Rd, Eugene, OR 97405

Because this site is closed to the public, those wishing to join us need to be on time to drive a few miles to the internal parking area. The gate will be locked at 8:05 AM and anyone attempting to enter after that will be trespassing illegally. Thank you for being respectful, not trespassing, and giving our wildlife space to be wild!

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.
