The Columbia River Gorge is famous the world over for its stunning scenery, award-winning wines, endless outdoor and adventure sports. It also boasts an amazing array of geologic and Ice Age floods features to delight everyone from the casual tourist to the most intensely-focused researcher. These features nestle in ecological zones ranging from snow-clad volcanic peaks to boreal rainforest, oak woodlands, and high desert, all within a 50 mile wide swath around the mighty Columbia River.

The Columbia River Gorge Chapter hosts 2-3 “Geology of the Columbia Gorge” field trips each year, as well as a frequent speaker program with presentations by prominent authors and scientists. Email the chapter for more information.

Please see the Upcoming Events to the right or the General Events Calendar for a listing of all chapter meetings and events.
