Our History

Over the past 40 years, Trillium has been a multi-faceted community, education & birthing center.  This 80-acre property nestled along Birch Creek & the Little Applegate River in the Siskiyou Mountains of Southern Oregon was acquired by Friends of Trillium LLC in 2017.  We are currently pouring heart & soul into bringing this beautiful environment back to life. We have a variety of opportunities to get involved so feel free to contact usWe’d love to share it with you!

We are a community that prides itself on resilience, practicing fire remediation, native plant restoration and organic gardening.
