ROOTED IN PLACE, POWERED BY LOCALS
Gorge Owned is a member-supported nonprofit working toward resilient, thriving communities in the Columbia River Gorge. We promote and inspire local, sustainable choices at home, work, and in our communities, improving the well-being of people and place for generations to come.
Sense of Place Lecture Series
The Sense of Place lecture series is truly a unique cultural asset. While both highly educational and relevant, presentations never fail to entertain, inspire and challenge the audience. A concerted effort is made to host high-quality presenters who are experts in their fields — authors, historians, artists, movers and shakers.
