The Columbia River Gorge is one of the world's most spectacular landscapes, but a landscape threatened with large-scale development proposals, air pollution and overuse. Friends works to strike a balance: protecting the scenic and natural values while encouraging sustainable recreation. Long-term Gorge protection can only come through strong public support. Friends of the Columbia Gorge must build a committed group of supporters to preserve the Gorge for future generations.


Friend is launching "Step Up for the Gorge," a call to action to support Gorge protection. An anonymous donor has offered up to $50,000 in matching donations to challenge individuals to increase their giving to Friends of the Columbia Gorge.

Long-Term Impact

Over three million visit the Gorge each year. This campaign will strengthen Gorge protection and ensure that it remains a special place for everyone, now and in the future. It will also benefit Gorge communities by protecting tourist destinations.
