Sunrise is a wonderful time to observe wildlife. Join long-time staff and wetlands educator Sarah Pinnock for a leisurely walk around Jackson Bottom Wetlands as we watch for birds leaving their night roosts, look for tracks and other kinds of animal sign and greet the new day in a beautiful place.

Hillsboro Highway, Hillsboro, Oregon. Dress for the weather and wear shoes or boots that can get wet and/or muddy.
