Green Gorge: Sustainability Tour

Immerse yourself in the Gorge! We’ll follow the beautiful Columbia River east into wind surfing and wind turbine country, stopping to stay at a charming historic facility with bunk rooms and a communal kitchen. We’ll spend our days visiting local sustainability-focused businesses, working on an organic farm, and engaging in some ‘outdoor lite’ activities (e.g. short hikes, e-biking) while taking advantage of the local transit system. This is a great trip for those looking to connect with nature as well as communities. Read the detailed trip description (coming soon).
