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.
Home to more than 200 breeding bird species, this beautiful region of central Oregon offers a fascinating range of habitats, from forest to desert to wetlands. Observe a range of birds, potentially including White-headed Woodpecker, Ferruginous Hawk, Barrow's Goldeneye, Townsend's Warbler and others. Volcanic features abound with landforms such as lava flows and cinder cones, as well as the Three Sisters and Broken Top, young volcanoes of the Cascades.


Highlights

• Embark on a circular route around the Cascade Mountains to study the area's natural history and native Western bird species.
• Daily excursions with Audubon instructors target varied habitats for sightings of songbirds, shorebirds, waterfowl, hummingbirds and raptors.
• Visit the Lava Lands Visitor Center and the High Desert Museum.
