Join Gorge Owned on Monday August 7th, 2017 from 5:30-7 for Green Drinks at The Griffin House in Hood River. Why is the Columbia a target for fossil fuel exports? How have river communities bagged major victories against the deep-pocketed fossil fuel industry? Columbia Riverkeeper’s Staff Attorney, Lauren Goldberg, will present on how fracked gas projects, coal export, and oil-by-rail threaten the Columbia River. Learn how the public is fighting back—from grassroots organizing, to cutting edge lawsuits, to advocating for new laws to protect public safety, clean water, and strong salmon runs. Get inspired and informed during Columbia Riverkeeper’s talk at Green Drinks.
Come enjoy the views of the Griffin House on the Columbia River Gorge and enjoy a glass of wine and light appetizers. Brought to you by Gorge Owned and member businesses, Green Drinks is a monthly networking event that aims to raise awareness about environmentally friendly business practices while providing a quality networking opportunity for members of the community. Cost of admission is a $5 suggested donation, waived for Gorge Owned members.
