Sauvie Island Center
Anna Goldrich is the Executive Director of the Sauvie Island Center.
Anna has been active in Oregon’s environmental community for over 25 years. She worked to elect environmental leaders, as Executive Director for the Oregon League of Conservation Voters for five years. She spent a dozen years working as a consultant for many of Oregon’s best-known environmental organizations, and has spent the past eight years building the Sauvie Island Center into a leader in farm education for children.
Inspired by the daily exposure to fun, engaging, environmental education that her own kids received as students at Sunnyside Environmental School, Anna enjoys the opportunity to make similar experiences available to children from all corners of our region.
“I’ve seen firsthand, how kids enjoy eating almost anything they can harvest themselves fresh from a farm, and I love how the Sauvie Island Center gives so many kids that opportunity. Through our work we are helping to maintain the Oregon tradition of a strong connection to the land.”
