For decades, volunteers have been the backbone of Gorge protection. Are you interested in joining this inspiring community? We’d like to meet you!

Friends of the Columbia Gorge provides a variety of ways to volunteer and make a difference in the Gorge. Here are a few of them:

  • Participate in a stewardship work party on our land trust properties
  • Lead or shepherd a hike or outing
  • Help out with office projects
  • Supervise an information table at an public event

Check our current volunteer events!

How to Get Started

  • First, tell us about yourself and what volunteer activities interest you by filling out our Volunteer Interest Application.
  • After we receive your application, our Outreach Manager will email you to arrange a time to meet in you person and connect you with the right project.

Volunteering Benefits

As a small token of our appreciation you’ll be invited to our Annual Volunteer Appreciation Celebration held each winter. You’ll also receive a pass to the Columbia Sportswear Employee Store.
