General Meeting & Program
 Time: 7:00 PM      
Friends of the Columbia Gorge

                                                   Speakers:  Sandy Wright

Sandy Wright, Development Director for Friends of the Columbia Gorge will speak about Preserve the Wonder, a campaign to ensure that the wild and wonderful Columbia Gorge endures for many generations to come. The campaign aims to raise $5.5 million to purchase and preserve seven properties on the Washington side of the Gorge totaling 420 acres. For over a decade, Friends of the Columbia Gorge has evaluated hundreds of properties and identified those with the most scenic landscapes, crucial wildlife habitat, and best recreational opportunities.  These lands are now close to being permanently preserve. Sandy will take you on a video tour of all seven properties and suggest other ways to see these lands first-hand or get involved.
