Though we may be the tools for much of this work, the ownership is all yours. The annual support provided by members funds advocacy, education, stewardship, community outreach, and all of our work to protect the Gorge. No single person or conservation effort can guarantee the safety of the Gorge forever, but together, through collective action we have the power.
