Portland, April 1st. Guided nature hikes and a native plant sale drew outdoor lovers to the 32nd Annual Trillium Festival in Tryon Creek State Natural Area.
“The festival is a great opportunity to introduce the park to new audiences and for visitors to learn more about the importance of using native plants in your garden and make a direct connection to nature with others who share those values”, says David Cohen, Executive Director of the Friends of Tryon Creek. Tryon Creek State Natural Area is located at 11321 SW Terwilliger Blvd in southwest Portland.
The Friends of Tryon Creek, together with their partner Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, celebrate spring with this fun-filled family event.
