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 frequently provides presentations on geology of the Columbia Gorge for schools and other organization. We also host frequent speaker programs with presentations by prominent authors and scientists. Email the chapter for more information.
