Make a Gift to Protect the Columbia GorgeWhile the Eagle Creek fire continues to burn, many are asking, what can I do now? How can I help rebuild this national treasure? Many may want to pick up a shovel right now, but consider first investing in long-term stewardship efforts by becoming a member of Friends of the Columbia Gorge.
Before a single sapling can be planted or any trails can be rebuilt, plans for restoration and future recreation need to be created, debated and finally implemented. Friends is the only nonprofit organization dedicated entirely to ensuring that the beautiful and wild Columbia Gorge remains a place apart, an unspoiled treasure for generations to come. What gets decided in the next year or two will affect the Gorge for decades. Join us and have a voice in that decision making.
Your membership gift will allow us to continue our work to protect the Gorge and in addition take steps to help the Gorge emerge from this disaster as a place our kids and grandkids will love and treasure as much as we have.
Your gift makes you a member of Friends and goes straight to Gorge protection. As a member you'll receive the following benefits:
- Early registration and access to over 100 guided outings (including over 50 members-only hikes)
- Our beautiful print newsletter in the mail every quarter
- Recognition in our Annual Report for gifts of $50 or more
