ROOTED IN PLACE, POWERED BY LOCALS
Gorge Owned is a member-supported 501(c)(3) community-building organization committed to social, economic, and environmental resilience in the Columbia River Gorge. Through community conversations, powerful lectures, and a passion for strengthening local communities, we help people deepen their connections to our landscape and to one another.
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.
