Friends of Tryon Creek hosts “Stewardship Saturday” every Saturday from 9 a.m. - noon.

Stewardship Saturdays are an excellent opportunity for interested members of the public to get out in nature and play an active role in the protection and restoration of Tryon Creek State Natural Area, Oregon’s only urban state park. Volunteers assist with trail maintenance and help remove English ivy, an invasive weed that overtakes and kills native plants, as well as garlic mustard, blackberry, and other not-native invasive species.

Ivy Pull

Pull together to remove invasive English ivy and to protect our forest. Ivy out competes our native plants, takes over the forest floor and ruins precious habitat.

Trail Maintenance

Work with other volunteers to maintain trails and keep them safe and clean. Projects may include digging out paths for rain water, spreading gravel and clearing culverts.
