Stewardship Work Parties 

Give back to the Gorge; no experience neccesary. Most stewardship work parties 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 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 everyone on the wait lists.
