Green Drinks ft. Riverkeeper 8/7 in Hood River

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Gorge Owned Green Drinks at The Griffin House, Hood River

Columbia Riverkeeper: “Fossil Fuel Threats on the Columbia”  8/7

Join Gorge Owned on Monday, August 7, 2017, from 5:30-7:00 pm for Green Drinks at The Griffin House in Hood River.  Learn why the Columbia is a target for fossil fuel exports and how river communities have 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.

Enjoy the views from the Griffin House on the Columbia River Gorge, a glass of wine by Cathedral Ridge and light appetizers by the White Buffalo.  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. This event is co-sponsored by Columbia Riverkeeper and gorgecurrent.com. Cost of admission is a $5 suggested donation, waived for Gorge Owned members.
