Looking Toward the FutureEach of these properties is a unique opportunity to Preserve the Wonder of the Gorge. Some properties will be stewarded by Friends forever, while others may eventually be sold to agencies like the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service or the U.S. Forest Service for permanent conservation.
When we are able to transfer ownership to public agency protection, all proceeds from the sales are reinvested, creating a revolving fund. Sixty percent of the funds will be used for future land purchases and forty percent will be applied to land stewardship on land we hold. Over time, your support is leveraged to ensure that Gorge lands are responsibly stewarded and preserved forever.
Your gift to the Preserve the Wonder campaign makes it possible to protect a national treasure now and into the future.
