Through vocalizations and movement, song birds are broadcasting daily stories happening on the land. Come to the evening lecture to find out how birds act as an alarm system for the forest and how you can tune in. At the field class, practice decoding bird language by listening, sitting and sound mapping in one of Metro’s off—the-beaten-path natural areas.

Pets policy: To protect plants, wildlife and people, Metro does not allow pets at regional parks and natural areas. Pets can damage habitat and threaten wildlife the region has worked to protect. In natural areas where dogs are not allowed, people see more wildlife and get closer to it. Seeing-eye dogs or other service animals are allowed. Please bring cleanup materials. http://www.oregonmetro.gov/parks/pets-policy
