Tryon Creek State Natural Area
Pull together to remove invasive English ivy and protect the Tryon Creek forest.
Ivy competes with the native plants, covers the tree canopy, takes over the forest floor and ruins precious habitat. Ivy is removed manually without chemicals in order to minimize damage to the ecosystem. Tryon Creek is a 640-acre state park located in SW Portland. There are more than 14 miles of hiking trails and educational programming for the greater Portland community.
