This is one of the oldest organizations dedicated to conserving wildlife and nature in the United States. It was founded in 1909. Visitors will have a chance to check out not only the Nature Center but also 150 Acres of woodland behind it which is part of the sanctuary, open to the public, and has 4.5 miles worth of hiking trails. The Nature Center has a Wildlife Care Center, and auditorium, taxidermy exhibits and even a store. Thousands of animals are brought here to be treated and nursed back into help annually. Some animals, specifically birds, that are too injured to survive in the wild anymore are kept here. The society occasionally organizes events and Exhibits. One of these is the Wild Arts Festival which has been going on for 36 years and it helps raise money for the society. Check the Audubon Society website or details about upcoming events. The society also organizes trips and camps educational in nature.

Audubon Society Of Portland Reviews & Ratings
Gorgeous park and trails! A must visit. You should be aware that it's not a paved flat hike. Well worth it! You won't believe you're in the middle of a major city.
This place is a must see. Ancient giant trees, natural fern hut, big birds, and wonderful hiking trails. Suitable for older children but some areas are surprisingly steep.
Didn’t get to see too many live birds, but a raven and a vulture. Was hoping to see more! There were more stuffed real birds and animals in the store though. Pretty walk through the small trails.
A few great 'beginner' level walking trails. Both the main one directly behind the gift shop and the the Founder's and Collins' trails across the street. Well maintained trails all around (at least in the summer!).
Called prior to coming in with two field mice that we caught in our home. They assured they would help us. We informed them one had a broken leg, and we were told they would euthanize it, which we expected. As we thought that would be the humane thing to do. But, the second, healthy mouse! Euthanized without question. They just took the animal and said nothing. This was TRICKERY. I wasn't even permitted to have the animal back because it has the "chance" of carrying a disease. The animal was not assessed for the disease, and it was assumed it carried it. Do all mice carry disease? I think not Audubon Society. Like them or not, they are a part of this ecosystem and live all around you. We don't eradicate a species because they have a chance of carrying disease. All animals have potential of carrying disease. You wouldn't euthanize a dog or a cat without question. The same respect should be given towards all animals, regardless of their pecking order in the pet chain. I will never return, bring you another animal, nor will my family set foot on your grounds again. All you proved was that you violated my trust, and I don't take lightly to that.
