2021 Ladd Marsh Bird Festival Planning

Dear Friends and Followers,

Friends of Ladd Marsh (FOLM) in partnership with the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) are in the planning stages of the annual Ladd Marsh Bird Festival. With Covid 19 still present, this will not be our normal event. As we finalize plans, we will release details of the event.

What we know now is that Ladd Marsh will be open for birding and we are planning to have staffed field stations. For now, we want to get the word out to save the date May 15-16 and please stay tuned for details as they are developed!

Stay Safe and happy Birding!

Memorial Donations

We thank the family and friends of William (Bill) Whitaker and Kenneth L. Gray for their generous donations to the Friends of Ladd Marsh in memoriam of their loved ones. 

In their honor, we will use these funds to further our work of enhancing awareness, understanding, and enjoyment of our natural ecosystems in and around Ladd Marsh.

Who knew?

Who knew the novel coronavirus, Covid-19, would still be with us as we approach the end of 2020? ODFW and the FOLM Board continue to consider options for resuming activities on Ladd Marsh but it looks like spring activities, if they go forward at all, will need to be modified to meet state guidelines. As decisions are made, we will try to update this site as well as notify members via email. Please stay safe and healthy. We want to see you on the marsh when this is over.
