This program provides assistance and incentives to residents with small lots (an acre or smaller) who seek to restore native wildlife habitat to their backyards.

The program has operated successfully in Portland for a number of years and the Friends of Tryon Creek, together with our partners and the City of Lake Oswego, now provide the same opportunity to Lake Oswego residents.

The Lake Oswego Backyard Habitat Program is sponsored by the City of Lake Oswego and facilitated by the Friends of Tryon Creek, in collaboration with the Audubon Society of Portland and Columbia Land Trust
