Date: Saturday, May 5
Time: 10:00-11:30 am
Location: Tryon Creek State Natural Area, Portland
Leaders: Deborah Hill and Roland Begin (Tryon Creek State Natural Area), Zak Weinstein (NPSO)
Under a canopy of beautiful Douglas-fir, western hemlock, bigleaf maple, and red alder, explore the native plants of Tryon Creek State Natural Area. While highlighting the important native plants of this park, the walk leaders – Deborah Hill and Roland Begin (Tryon Creek SNA) and Zak Weinstein (NPSO) – will share insights about forest and ecological succession: how some tree species become dominant after shorter-lived ones die. This walk is part of a series of weekly Saturday guided walks organized by the park and geared for ages 5 and above. There will be two walks held simultaneously, one for families and one for adults without children. Meet at the park visitor center. For more specific information, call (503) 636-9886 ext. 225. Event co-sponsored with Tryon Creek State Natural Area.
