Eagle Creek Fire Stewardship

Friends has teamed up with Trailkeepers of Oregon, Pacific Crest Trail Association, and Washington Trails Association in response to the outpouring of support to volunteer in the Eagle Creek fire recovery efforts. The team is collaborating to offer a suite of complementary stewardship and trail work parties this spring and summer. Please sign-up here to receive news and updates on upcoming work parties via our new stewardship email list. 


2018 Stewardship Work Parties - No experience necessary to lend a hand!

Most stewardship events are led by Stewardship Volunteer Coordinator Mika Barrett or Land Trust Stewardship Coordinator Sara Woods and are from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. We provide all the tools and encourage carpooling. When you volunteer at three or more work parties, you will receive a Friends of the Columbia Gorge custom Columbia Sportswear tech tee.  

Questions? Contact Mika Barrett at mika@gorgefriends.org or 971-634-0594.
