Bird watching is proliferate in the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region and you don't need to be an ornithologist to participate!
Just grab your binoculars and a field guide, and head out to shallow marshes, forest trails, or rugged coastline to view a wide variety of birds in their natural habitat.

For adventurous birders, tree climbing expeditions can hoist you up 150 feet (45.72 m) into an old-growth forest canopy for a bird's eye view. Or visit Eugene's Cascades Raptor Center to learn how birds of prey are an important part of our eco-system.
