WELCOME TO TANNER SPRINGS PARK, an urban oasis of oak-prairie and wetlands – a microcosm of the richness that the Willamette Valley once held. Less than 5% remains of the original 1.7 million acres. We hope you enjoy the smorgasbord of over 72 species of native plants providing a continuous food buffet for native pollinators and other wildlife. It’s not surprising that you may find plants you’ve never seen before. For a full plant list, visit our website. Friendsoftannersprings.org.
Partners and Progress
FRIENDS OF TANNER SPRINGS started with a chat over hiking boots which lead to stewardship opportunities at Tanner Springs Park and hasn’t missed a step since 2015. Tanner Springs Park is owned and managed by Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R). The Friends of Tanner Springs partner with PP&R and have received support from the Portland Parks Foundation to build a vibrant program offering habitat restoration, wildlife monitoring, and wildlife training. Come join us.
