Muddy Boots Family Nature Club at Tryon Creek State Park

On April 28th, Tryon Creek State Park () hosted its first program of the Muddy Boots Family Nature Club since Jessica and Angela turned it over to Friends of Tryon Creek education director Matthew Collins (see the OregonLive article, “Kids and nature: Tips for helping make the connection”). They had volunteers stationed in various locations in the park to teach visitors about the natural history of Tryon. The next program is on August 11th. Enjoy the pictures:
