    Join us for our free walks during peak migration to see returning birds that are stopping by Portland’s parks either along their northern migration or as a potential nesting location. On Monday through Thursday we will bird Evergreen Cemetery. Last year we identified 111 species during these two weeks!

    We will meet near the pond in the back of the cemetery. Here is a map of our meeting place (park near marker “B”). The walk will continue if there is a light rain, but we will cancel if there is a steady downpour.
