Ice Age Floods

Travel the path of the great Ice Age Floods from Missoula to Portland on this popular geology, birding, and wildlife tour.

From the giant ripples of Camas Prairie to the astonishing channeled scablands of eastern Washington, the dizzying Grand Coulee and the awesome Columbia River Gorge, this tour keeps you in the flow throughout.

Kenya

Join Portland Audubon on the wildlife trip of a lifetime! Kenya is renowned for its remarkable diversity of landscapes, animals, and cultures. Kenya boasts over 1100 species of birds, all of Africa’s “Big 5” mammals, large herds of grazing herbivores, plus fascinating history, friendly people, and delicious food. We’ll explore a wide variety of habitats, including savanna, wetlands, semi-arid scrubland, desert Lava, highland forest, montane grasslands, and rare equatorial forest. Our trip coincides with the migration of many birds to and from Asia and Europe, and many resident species will be sporting fancy breeding plumage, so we are likely to experience an unparalleled array of avifauna.
