From Friends of Tryon Creek:
Tryon Forest Adventures offers your child time to grow, learn and have fun outdoors at Tryon Creek State Natural Area in SW Portland. Weekly programs run from 9 am-4 pm, Monday–Thursday, for youth ages 7-12.
Friends of Tryon Creek is a community supported non-profit connecting kids to nature since 1970. Join us this summer!
Each day youth explore the forest with classic Tryon Creek activities like hiking, nature observation, and fort building, in addition to culturally inclusive stories, nature art and science-based projects.
Programs at Tryon cultivate a community of respect and inclusivity. Tryon Forest Adventures has an instructor to youth ratio of 2:10. Experienced seasonal instructors are trained in the practices of health, safety, and youth engagement within a dynamic natural environment, providing a safe space for learning and growth.
Sign up today! Only a few spots are open for these two engaging nature themes:
Fun with Flora
Find out why plants, flowers and trees are important to the environment. Explore the importance of the sun and how it effects the environment surrounding us.
Water is Life
Discover the importance of water and its impact on the environment, especially for plants, animals and within our own lives.
The mission of Friends of Tryon Creek, in partnership with Oregon State Parks, is to inspire every community to identify, cultivate or reclaim their relationship with nature in this cherished urban forest.
See you in the forest this summer!
