The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

An evening with the Friends of the Columbia Gorge set for Nov. 8


November 2, 2017

After the recent fires in the Columbia River Gorge, so many people in Oregon and Washington wanted to help. While the Eagle Creek fire was a devastating blow, it reaffirms the importance of the capital campaign that the Friends of the Columbia Gorge are running: Preserve the Wonder. The goal is to conserve 420 acres of land on the Washington side of the Gorge. These lands preserve beautiful views, protect wildlife, and provide more places for people to take solace in nature.

The evening includes a virtual tour of the seven Preserve the Wonder properties, an update on the Eagle Creek fire and and an announcement of the finalists of a recent photo contest.

There is no entry fee, and food and drink will be available to purchase. Complimentary Preserve the Wonder beer will be served.

This event takes place November 8 from 6-8 p.m., at Castaway Portland, 1900 NW 18th Avenue, Portland.
