Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I will be driving back to Portland on Friday afternoon if anyone needs a ride in that direction. Be prepared to do some birding/sightseeing along the way!

Took me forever to find this page a second time. I have connected with Diana about driving up to Seattle after the program. I will be happy to take others as well. I have explored the OR coast with my family, but not as a bird-focused activity. I'm looking forward to learning more about the local birds. See you all soon!
Jean Reger Sep 03, 2014 at 08:12 AM

I will be driving up the coast from Gold's Beach on Sunday. What "must see" shouldn't I miss?

Will the Harlequins be there?

I would love to see harlequins too!

Just a thought for those attending this program: Sat., Sept. 6, out of Coos Bay, there is a 5 hours pelagic birding boat trip. Check thebirdguide.com if you are interested. As of today there are two spots left.

Looking for a roommate for this program. Also to share ride or rental car. Anyone going up towards Seattle after the program?

Jean Reger Apr 04, 2014 at 09:55 AM

Looking to share a ride/rental car for this trip.
Diana Churchill Jul 01, 2014 at 01:47 PM

I am interested in sharing a rental car. I will be arriving Portland on Friday night the 5th, staying with a friend and hoping to share a rental car or ride on the morning of Sunday, Sept. 7th
Jean Reger Jul 01, 2014 at 03:04 PM

Diana, I wish I had heard from you sooner, but I have since made plans that won't mesh with yours. I am flying in on Friday and heading down the coast. I have made plans for a pelagic boat tour on Sat. that goes out of Coos Bay. Sat. night I have reservations there and will be driving from there on Sun.
