Renowned for its fertile land with orchards, vineyards, and rolling grass fields nestled between the snow-capped volcanic peaks of the Cascade Mountains and the forests of the Coast Range, the Willamette Valley offers you an abundance of birds in every season.

The Willamette Valley Birding Trail is your guide to discovery. The trail guide highlights 138 birding hotspots where you can still see birds that Lewis & Clark described in their journals more than 200 years ago: from the tiny wrens that scolded them from ferns around their camps, to the tremendous goose flocks that winter in the valley.

This guide will help you to make the most of your birdwatching adventure, whether you travel by car, bicycle, or public transit. So grab your binoculars and a favorite field guide, and come explore the Willamette Valley!
