But do you know our name?

Gorge Ecology Outdoors

With your support, GEO is empowering the advocates, change makers, stewards and scientists our planet and community needs to thrive.    Since 1996  over 25,000 students in the Columbia Gorge have been inspired to care for nature and our local community through outdoor experiences and education.    Without you, our programs wouldn’t be possible. You’re helping us create extensive opportunities for youth to get outside and connect with the earth. Please support kids in the Gorge by donating today.  

Happy Holidays!
