ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
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.
Oregon’s north coast is a dramatic combination of forests, wetlands, estuaries, rocky headlands, light houses and quaint towns. This diversity offers an excellent chance to see birds — including raptors such as Peregrine Falcon and Bald Eagle, shorebirds such as Black Turnstone, Surfbird and Pectoral Sandpiper, as well as gulls, cormorants, loons and forest song birds including the unique Wrentit. Experienced naturalists are eager to help you improve your birding skills.


Highlights

• Experience five days of exploring the North Oregon Coast, visiting prime bird-watching locations of rocky headland, bay, estuary, river, forest and beach habitats.
• Visit the Historic Cape Meare's lighthouse, walk through an old-growth forest to a secluded cove and conduct a sea watch for pelagic birds.
• Enjoy evenings with fellow birders reviewing the day’s sightings and brief illustrated talks on bird ID and behaviors, as well as bird sightings expected the next day.
