The Stumptown Stories series, geared to everyone who loves this city we live in, takes place most Tuesdays at Jack London bar (basement of the Rialto, SW 4th and Alder). Free to get in, but must be 21 or over – there’s a full bar!
This Tuesday, August 30, 2011, the topic is Should I Stay or Should I Go Now? Wildlife Migrations of the Pacific Northwest.
Every fall the days shorten, the weather cools and many different animal species begin their annual migration south. Portland is stopover for some, and a destination for others. Steve Engel of the Portland Audubon Society will illuminate some of the mysteries of migration while focusing on famous and not so famous Portland migrants, from the Vaux’s Swifts to Birds of Prey to dragonflies and more.
Presenter Steve Engel has been the Adult Programs Coordinator at the Audubon Society since 2006, and has worked in the environmental education field since 1982.
Doors open at 5pm, presentation begins at 7:30pm. Go to the presentation, and then throughout the month of September check out the Chapman Vaux’s Swift Watch in NW Portland!
