Sundays on the Gorge Presents:

Dr. Duane Ray: Coal and Oil Through the Gorge

With the dramatic growth of the US coal and oil industry in the Dakotas – and the subsequent increased use of the Columbia Gorge transportation corridor - come new concerns about safety and the environment. The Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center will host a presentation and discussion by retired physicist Dr. Duane Ray to examine the issues.

Read more about Dr. Ray and his presentation here.



Featured Exhibits

First People

Grand Gallery

First Peoples focuses on the history of the original people to live in this area of the Gorge, the Cascade Chinook. The Emory Strong Library is also visible, showing his collection of early-man artifacts.

The largest gallery in the museum is Harvesting Resources, which focuses on the timber and fishing industries in the Gorge. It also contains a waterfall. Four very large artifacts are on display.
