Sign up here to receive announcements for work parties on our land trust properties and public lands, related tips, stories, and events. Sent every four to six weeks.


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. If the work party is full, we encourage you to add your name to the waitlist as we do our best to accommodate people on the wait lists.

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