Weekly nature walks for toddlers and preschoolers in a Portland Park


Event Types > Community Events


Ladybug Walks are perfect for toddlers, preschoolers and their grown-ups who want to investigate nature in Portland’s parks with trained preschool naturalists! Children explore and discover nature with an Environmental Educator at just the right pace. Walks introduce children to plants, creeks, insects, birds, and animals. All walks are geared for children ages 2-6 and last about an hour. No pre-registration necessary - just arrive at the meeting spot at 10am, rain or shine! Cost is on a sliding scale ($3, $5, or $8 per participating child) – choose what works best for your family! Find the full 2018 schedule at

Meet at the east entrance on Meadow Dr. (South of Marine Dr. on NE 13th Ave., west on Meadow Dr. to the unmarked gravel road. Look for signs!) MAP

If you can’t find the group the day of the walk or are confused where to meet, please call or text 503-823-1149.
