Columbia Gorge Refuge Stewards
Our mission is to preserve and enhance the native species of Steigerwald Lake, Franz Lake and Pierce National Wildlife Refuges through public education, advocacy and habitat restoration.
We do this by:
- Recruiting, training & leading volunteers in support of the Refuges through habitat restoration, citizen science, environmental education and other efforts.
- Making the public more aware of the Refuges through personal contacts, presentations, the media, community events, and the Internet.
- Serving as advocates for the Refuges.
- Introducing young people to the habitats and inhabitants of the Refuges.
