Mission & Values

The mission of Friends of Tryon Creek, in partnership with Oregon State Parks, is to inspire and nurture relationships with nature in our unique urban forest.

The Friends envision a collaborative, creative and engaged community where people and wildlife thrive in relationship to each other and Tryon Creek State Natural Area.  The Friends impact on this special place and the people connected to it, now and in the future, inspires fun, action, well-being, ecological and community health.
