Take action to protect our sea and shorebirds.
We need volunteers to help with surveys and monitoring of sea and shorebirds. Portland Audubon has taken the lead for many years on a variety of community science projects along the coast. Help is needed for such projects as Black Oystercatcher and Brown Pelican surveys, Snowy Plover Patrols, and Seabird Colony monitoring. All you need is time and willingness to learn.

Take action to ban plastic bags and styrofoam in Oregon.
This legislative session, we have the chance to make a difference here in Oregon. House Bill 2509 would ban plastic bags statewide, and House Bill 2883 would ban styrofoam take-out containers and cups. Please urge your representative to vote yes on these bills. Contact them here...

World Migratory Bird Day offers the chance to celebrate Spring and the arrival of migrating birds with live demonstrations, informative presentations, and hands-on activities and games for kids.

World Migratory Bird Day is celebrated each year to highlight the need for the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats. More than 300 events in more than 60 countries mark[ed] World Migratory Bird Day 2018 including bird festivals, education programs, media events, bird watching trips, presentations, film screenings, and a benefit concert to raise funds for international nature conservation.

This year’s theme, Protect Birds: Be the Solution to Plastic Pollution strikes a chord with all who are interested in protecting our beautiful coastal habitat and wildlife: “Simply put, plastic pollution is a killer. Checkout bags from the grocery store, foam foodware, single-use water bottles, cigarette butts, and other plastics are responsible for everything from ugly litter to the death of wildlife.” (excerpt from Surfrider Foundation’s “Rise Above Plastics Toolkit”). Festivals like ours help to raise public awareness and offer viable solutions.

Audubon Society of Lincoln City (ASLC) is bringing the Migratory Bird Day festival to the Lincoln City Community Center in partnership with Haystack Rock Awareness Program, Lincoln City Parks and Recreation, Newport Oregon Surfrider Foundation, Oregon Coast Aquarium, Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition/CoastWatch, Oregon State Parks and Recreation, Tillamook County Master Recyclers, US Forest Service at Siuslaw National Forest, and Environment for the Americas. The festival is made possible through the support of sponsors including Chinook Winds Golf Resort, Pacific Chiropractic Clinic, and Salishan Resort.
