Bird lovers rejoice! The Friends of the Refuge, in conjunction with Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge in Sherwood, welcome all to their Annual Tualatin River Bird Festival. This is a family-friendly, free event.
Visitors will experience a diversity of activities celebrating wildlife and wild places. Enjoy live bird shows, conservation exhibits, food, and guided walks for adults and kids.
Build a bee board, birdhouse or bat house; try your hand at casting a fishing line; stay under par at the migration putt-putt golf activity; and participate in hands-on conservation activities geared toward kids.
Please note, there will be no parking at the refuge on the day of the Festival. There will be a free shuttle from 12205 SW Tualatin Rd, Tualatin (Two-story Brick Building). Watch for the bright yellow signs. The first shuttle departs at 5:30 a.m., with the last shuttle leaving the refuge at 6:30 p.m. For more information visit:
