Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
Portland Audubon's mission is to inspire all people to love and protect birds, wildlife, and the natural environment upon which life depends.
Portland Audubon is located on the edge of Portland's Forest Park and includes a Wildlife Care Center where over 3,000 native injured and orphaned animals are rehabilitated every year. Our education department provides nature-related classes and trips to youth and adults, and our Nature Store is the go-to-place in Portland for optics and nature-related gifts. Guests are able to enjoy our 150-acre nature sanctuary as they walk over 4.5 miles of maintained trails. Our dedicated and knowledge staff and volunteers work hard to inspire people to love and protect nature.
It's a very beautiful location and very beautiful birds to watch and to care for. It would have been a good experience for me if the Coordination had common sense to address uncomfortable situations. This has nothing to do with your performance as a volunteer, but rather to how they manage it.
Something you may want to consider is also the fact that you will have to buy their uniform, which is not cheap at all. And they won't commit to you, since they seem to have an abundance of new volunteers every year. Their reputation is overrated.
I don't recommend this institution. I'd rather donate only.
