Tryon Creek’s Crew
Tryon Creek State Natural Area is supported by a partnership between Oregon State Parks and the Friends of Tryon Creek.

This month we’d like to recognize Bruce Rottink, Tryon Creek Volunteer, for his ongoing support and sharing his knowledge with all of our readers. He writes many of the post you enjoy right here on Tryon Creek Naturalist Notes. Thank you, Bruce, for all you do!
Did you know? Bruce is a retired research forester, Nature Guide, and our go-to-guy for questions about the quirky flora found in the forest.
