Columbia Gorge Climate Action Network (CGCAN)

Our Mission

The Columbia Gorge Climate Action Network (CGCAN) educates, organizes, and motivates Columbia Gorge activists to reduce and eliminate fossil fuel usage and climate change, at all levels from individual to global. We encourage clean local renewable energy, conservation, community sustainability, and resilience throughout our National Scenic Area.

Who We Are

IMG_0686CGCAN is a network of Oregon and Washington residents from the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. We are alarmed and concerned, about the political, economic, and social forces causing climate change from all sources, as well as toxic pollution, energy dependence, and local unemployment due to fossil fuels. We are passionately committed to collective and strategic actions that can effectively impede fossil fuels and reduce climate change.

We love the Columbia River and its surrounding wilderness areas. It’s our home. Many of us live here because we love the Gorge environment. We respect its natural beauty and value a healthful quality of life in this region. The forces behind the climate emergency and fossil fuel pollution threaten our future here. We know this threat extends to communities throughout the world. We’re committed to saving it from harm. We work with everyone in our neighborhood as educators about the climate and pollution reality. We work with policymakers as citizen advocates of a sustainable society. Our membership draws from a rich variety of political, philosophical, technical, spiritual, and religious perspectives. We are an intergenerational group and believe that inclusiveness makes us strong.
