Your Legacy In the Landscape

November 6, 2018

Over the course of our lives, we all leave some kind of legacy in the landscape. The legacies of Confluence are powerful artworks by Maya Lin and educational initiatives in schools designed to tell the story of the Columbia River ecosystem through Indigenous voices.

Support the Annual Appeal and become a Friend of Confluence today!

The fact is, the important work of Confluence is only possible because of the Friends of Confluence, people like you who are willing to be part of a legacy that connects all of us with a deeper understanding of the history, cultures and environment of our beloved Northwest.

Will you make Confluence part of your legacy?

This year, the Friends of Confluence made it possible to:

~Reach more than 1,000 school children through Confluence in the Classroom and Confluence Outdoors.

~Develop professional development workshops for teachers so they can bring Native history and culture into schools.

~Expose more than 600 people to Indigenous perspectives through tours and Confluence Story Gatherings.

~Maintain and preserve five completed Confluence art landscapes for generations to come.

And there is more work to do next year. Now more than ever, the hard work to broaden our cultural understanding of the place we love is so important! Thank you.

P.S. Any Friend of Confluence is entitled to a guided walk through one of our sites with Executive Director Colin Fogarty. Friday Friend Tours are generally the first and fourth Friday of the month. Feel free to bring your own friends and family. Email Colin to make arrangements. Thanks!
