Work Party Locations:

Boonesferry Terrace HOA

Volunteers have been vigorously restoring this special acre of forested land for six years. One result of ongoing volunteer effort and support from WMSWCD and TCWC is the wildlife that has returned. A trail was established a few years ago for visitors to enjoy a short walk through the site in any season. Come be a part of restoring this space!

Lewis & Clark College

Come help protect a well-loved natural area surrounding the Lewis & CLark Law Campus Walkway that connects the Collins View/Burlingame neighborhoods with Tryon Creek State Natural Area.

Jackson Middle School

Join SWNI’s Watershed Resource Center at Jackson Middle School to tend to the natural spaces surround this community-loved pathway.

Marshall Park

Help continue restoration efforts in Marshall Park by removing ivy and planting new native trees and shrubs. This is a unique and beautiful natural area that helps to protect Tryon Creek and charming Owl Creek.

Tryon Creek State Natural Area

Join in with Friends of Tryon Creek’s Eco-Crew, for community-led park stewardship. Kids are welcome to join: there will be a 2-mile hike and work will be off-trail in uneven terrain – not to difficult, so families are always welcome to attend. 

Lake Oswego United Church of Christ

Come work near the creek, where community members are working on restoring a meditation area.

Register here.

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 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
