Great Bird and Frog watching

Love this place. It is so accessible. The frog population seems to be doing very well. Go around dusk and the sound is just intense.

This is a wonderful area to wander and be surrounded by nature. If you visit different times of the year, you will see the area flooded in the winter, many times with geese who have migrated from other states, and in the summer you will see and hear birds and other wildlife. There are periodic organized walks during the day... More

Paradise for nature watching. Well done handicap accessible viewing deck and interpretive center. Miles and miles of walking trails as well. Lots of birdlife. The interpretative center is incredibly well done; lots of interesting pieces for children and adults.

Located in a suburb of Portland, surrounded by large busy streets, sits this fairly wide area of nature. It's a place to find that inner quiet while learning about the indigenous life. There's even a wooden bridge that overlooks a brook, the water churning like the great rapids on some days.I found it best to walk through in late spring... More

We saw a few birds and a couple of Mason bees working out. Typical Hillsboro charm: nice building but not a lot of 'wow' in the preserve itself. This is space that was saved from being overwhelmed by the adjacent mountainous landfill. But it seems like the city just decided that saving it was enough, without actually making it feel... More

A great place to visit for families with lots of information and good trails around the preserve. Staff also very helpful regarding local bird watching 'hotspots'.

As a birder I was very impressed with what they are doing at Jackson bottom Wetlands. The paths are close enough to many areas of water so you can get up close views of the birds. There is a very nice visitors center with lots of information and they offer a large number of educational classes and events. This is... More
