The Eagle Creek FIRE 2017, 2018 Columbia River Exhibit

Located in the Ernie Kuck Wing and running through the end of February is the new exhibit, The Eagle Creek FIRE 2017, 2018 with content on loan from the Hood River History Museum and in collaboration with the US Forest Service.

Experience a powerful display of intense, real-time fire imagery along with facts, time lines and stories from first responders to friends and neighbors along the Columbia River. These experiences bring opportunities to apply the lessons learned to possible future wildfires in our region. The exhibit will explore the causes and drivers of wildfire in the Pacific Northwest and contemplate land management considerations. It is a snapshot captured in time to help us understand the mechanisms for wildfires and a way to share ideas and solutions as future fire seasons approach.

The exhibit includes a place  for you to share your personal stories and comments, anonymously if you choose. Even a word or two is welcome. The exhibit has been updated to reflect new information via the US Forest Service. Send your stories to firestories@gorgediscovery.org.
