The Friends of Ladd Marsh (FOLM) sponsor several events over the course of the year. Some events are informational, and others need volunteers. Our largest event is the annual Bird Festival that takes place the second weekend of May. The Festival typically kicks off Friday night with participant registration, snacks and music, and a guest speaker. A detailed schedule will be available here and on the FOLM Facebook page.

Another event that regularly draws a crowd is the First Saturday bird walk. Held year-round on the first Saturday of each month, the bird walk takes folks to birding locations around the Grand Ronde Valley and gives novice birders a chance to learn more about birds, and veteran birders a chance to share what they know, and perhaps spot a rarity.
