Every spring leading nurseries from around the state come to Tryon Creek with a large range of native and hardy plant inventories available for purchase. In addition, the Festival will feature guided interpretive nature hikes by Friends’ volunteers and State Parks staff, a nature discovery open house where families can explore the natural world, and gardening presentations to help festival attendees understand the value of native gardening and how best to care for native plants. The Festival will also include local craft and garden art vendors.
A free shuttle is offered from Lewis and Clark College (located just north of the park on Terwilliger Blvd. and Palatine Hill Rd.) during festival hours which makes it easy to get to and from the event site. This year’s Trillium Festival is co-sponsored with Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
