Participate in guided bird and habitat walks, and hands-on conservation activities geared toward kids. Enjoy live bird shows, music, storytelling, gamebird calling, and food. Build a bat house, bird house, or bee board. Participate in archery and go canoeing with the Tualatin Riverkeepers (in Tigard). Listen to a presentation by John Muir about the history of American conservation. View the winning photographs of the current nature photography contest (see website for details). Explore exhibits and products promoting wildlife and greenspaces.
Many activities are free, although some require prior registration (see website for online registration). On Saturday, there will be free offsite parking and a complementary shuttle service.
