This is your chance to make a real difference serving the Hood River Valley Community!
Founded in 1926, Crag Rats are the oldest search and rescue organization in the United States, conducting operations on Mt. Hood and in the Columbia River Gorge. A charter member of the Mountain Rescue Association, the group got its name since it's members started as climbers who realized they could assist search and rescue by being able to literally climb into the crags of the mountain.
The members have become a close-knit group over the years boasting some as being third generation members who, beyond their rescue efforts, also socialize and enjoy the outdoors together.
