Portland Audubon Marmot Cabin

By Lynn Morgan

Portland Audubon’s Marmot Cabin is the perfect place for youth to learn about wildlife, healthy ecosystems and natural history through camps, field trips and Outdoor School. Bordering the Bull Run Watershed on 91 acres of the Miller Wildlife Sanctuary, this inspiring educational center was designed by Harka Architecture and is a testament to the Audubon’s commitment to the natural world. 

The 3200 SF cabin is not only a beautiful space for learning about nature, but also serves as a teaching tool for sustainable design.   Thoughtful material selections include an array of FSC Certified wood products and Pacific Madrone flooring from Sustainable NW Wood.  Images provided by Harka Architecture. 

The focal point of the space is an incredible fireplace built by artist Matt Goddard of Poetry in Stone that reflects the geological history of Oregon with stones from across the state landscape.

We are honored to be part of this project that gives young people a chance to make lifelong connections with the natural world.
