While out exploring our natural area parks, you may come across one of THPRD’s four Park Rangers. Rangers manage and conduct habitat restoration and trail improvements in our natural areas and support environmental education programs. A day in the life of a THPRD ranger may include removing invasive weeds in a neighborhood park, conducting habitat surveys, leading a service-learning project with a school group, or mapping THPRD’s extensive trail network.
Where to find a Ranger
Rangers are typically in uniform while in the field.
Scott Hinderman: Cooper Mountain Nature Park primary ranger.
Sarah Skelly: Tualatin Hills Nature Park primary ranger
Greg Creager: natural areas within the northern half of the district.
Kyle Spinks: natural areas within the southern half of the district.
Ask a Ranger
If you have specific park or habitat questions, comments, or concerns, contact a Park Ranger. Rangers can also field questions or concerns regarding District trails, wildlife in your neighborhood, native or invasive species, or restoration projects.
Contact a Ranger by calling the Nature Park Interpretive Center at 503-629-6350, or find us on Facebook, THPRD Natural Resources.
