Ensuring the Gorge remains a vibrant, living place—wondrous, wild, and open to all—is at the core of what we do. We are Friends of the Columbia Gorge, the only conservation organization entirely dedicated to protecting, preserving, and stewarding the Columbia Gorge for future generations.

Friends’ conservation work is driven by members, volunteers, and activists. There are many ways to join our community of Gorge enthusiasts. Here are some ways to get started:
