Based in beautiful Southern Washington, enjoy an invigorating blend of morning birding outings and afternoon nature hikes that introduce you to the amazing diversity of the Mount Adams Wilderness. Explore the micro- 80-acre ponderosa pine forest right outside your door, searching for McGillivray’s and Nashville Warblers, Cooper’s Hawks and Olive-sided Flycatchers, and continue your birding adventures in the shadow of Mount St. Helens and among the Douglas firs edging Trout Lake. After birding each morning, hike with Portland Audubon Society naturalists to a new area of this vast wilderness.


• Learn about Columbia River Gorge at an interpretive center and hike to Beacon Rock, an ancient volcanic plug on the shores of the river.
• Approaching Mount St. Helens, hike to Windy Ridge, where you can appreciate the devastation caused by the 1980 eruption.
• Hike along a section of the Pacific Crest Trail that stretches from Mexico to Canada.
