Tryon Creek’s Crew

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

We all work together to make this special forest in the city, a place for you to learn, explore, relax, and connect with friends, family and the natural world.

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.

“The thing I love most about Tryon Creek State Natural Area is just when you start to think you’ve seen it all, you’ll find something you’ve never seen before.”

Favorite nature quote:

“Life will find a way.”  (from the movie “Jurassic Park“)
