Friends of the Columbia Gorge


To protect the scenic, natural, cultural and recreational resources of the Gorge by ensuring implementation of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Act and other protective laws.

Bottom Line for Portland

Friends advocates for the protection of the 293,000 acres in the National Scenic Area that millions of Portlanders enjoy annually. Since the Eagle Creek Fire, we’ve launched a land stewardship program, and hosted more than 50 outings and 300 volunteers. Our outdoor youth education program reaches 400 middle school students.

“Now, more than ever, the Gorge needs us all. Because of the Eagle Creek Fire, I’m redoubling my gift to Friends. The fire scarred so many special places, and it’s incredibly important to me that the Gorge recovers from it naturally.”

—Erin Carver, Friends member
