The Tryon Creek Watershed Council Board will not meet in July.

State of the Watershed

We have fish-friendly habitat in our creek system!  That’s right – the US Fish & Wildlife Service and Portland Bureau of Environmental Services recently published a paper about our Tryon Creek Watershed.

The Tryon Creek Watershed Council restores, protects, and enhances the ecological health and function of our unique urban watershed. The majority of TCWC projects involve restoration of riparian native vegetation on stream banks, particularly on private properties that lie along key wildlife corridors that neighbor green-spaces and that are adjacent to existing restoration sites. The council supports projects that remove fish passage barriers and coordinates partnerships, watershed planning, and monitoring.

Tryon Creek Watershed Council, established in 1994 as a small group of caring citizens is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with an active board and 400 volunteers.
