Work parties highlight cross-party cooperation

The Columbia Gorge Windsurfing Association and Columbia Gorge Kiteboarding Association have been working together on a variety of issues over the last couple of years.

As a show of cooperation and mutual interests between the user groups, two joint work parties are planned for the near future: one this weekend at the popular state park in Rowena and another at Blackberry Beach — a new multi-use recreational site at the Port of Cascade Locks.


The cleanup is set for May 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers of both groups are welcome.

Blackberry Beach

A lot has been done on this project, and there’s a lot more to do. The site has great promise to be a top-notch new access point for a variety of user groups.

A work party is set for all day June 2. The site is located at the end of Industrial way; follow signs to Blackberry Beach.
