BIRDHERS

is a free space for women, those that identify or non-binary people to support each other by



being together,
    present in nature

appreciating the flora and fauna
            around us.



Through the lens of birds, we observe how everything in nature is inherently connected.





Birdhers is based in Portland, Oregon and serves as both a social and outdoor club. We are skewed for beginners and all levels of experience welcome. Extra binoculars provided.



ETHICS

Comfort of birds comes first
Wear muted colors

Ask questions!

Be mindful of volume
Please no dogs
Take pictures, leave only footprints

No elitism
Promote relationships with public


Above all else, Birdhers champions inclusivity, curiosity, and respect. Any form of bigotry, racism, or misogyny will not be tolerated.

VOLUNTEER

To appreciate birds in their vibrant ecosystems, we must be stewards for wilderness spaces. Consider volunteering in your neighborhood’s green spaces. Sometimes, Birdhers organizes group acts of service for the following organizations:


Friends of Tabor 
Chehalem Ridge Nature Park
