10th Annual Watershed Wide Event! March 16, 2019

Join us in caring for this important urban habitat on a super-fun day full of celebration and restoration!

Register to join us at Tryon Creek Watershed Council’s 10th Annual Watershed Wide Event! Coming up on March 16, 2019, we’ll gather as a big group for coffee, breakfast snacks, and cheering, then split up to several sites across the watershed for volunteer work parties.


Tryon Creek is a special watershed with high habitat quality that supports many wonderful fish, birds, and other wildlife. You don’t want to miss this community event – it’s the biggest volunteer day in the Tryon Creek watershed, and a chance to come together, have fun, and do good work.

We’ll bring tools, gloves, and food – you bring your energy and volunteer power!

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.
