Founded in 1902, the Audubon Society of Portland (ASoP) is one of the oldest conservation organizations in the nation. ASoP connects people with nature and their power to protect it. From Portland's urban neighborhoods to across the region and state, ASoP has been mobilizing Oregonians for over 100 years and has been instrumental in developing the environmental policies that shape our region today, helping to create Oregon's first National Wildlife Refuges, Portland's first Wildlife Refuges and the state's first marine reserves. ASoP offers educational programs designed to engage kids and adults alike in the appreciation and stewardship of nature, and our conservation programs provide a continuum of engagement opportunities in natural resources stewardship and protection. Hosting over 40,000 visitors each year, our 150 acre Wildlife Sanctuary, just five minutes from downtown Portland, offers four miles of family friendly trails and the region's oldest and busiest wildlife rehabilitation center, treating 3,000 animals each year with the goal of returning them to the wild.
