The Preserve the Wonder campaign is Friends of the Columbia Gorge's most ambitious land conservation effort to date, aiming to acquire and protect seven unique properties totaling more than 400 acres along the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge.
For over a decade, we have evaluated hundreds of properties and identified those with the most scenic landscapes, crucial wildlife habitat, and best recreational opportunities. Now, with the help of an active real estate market, conservation of these properties has become possible.
But we must act now. Each property is unique and important to the long-term conservation vision of the Gorge. If we miss this opportunity to preserve them now we may never get another chance.
