Friends of the Grande Ronde Valley

The Friends of the Grande Ronde Valley is a group of engaged citizens that desire to preserve our pristine valley, our irreplaceable way of life and our right to say how our tax dollars are spent.


After scrupulously researching the facts and truths about wind factories and their impact on our earth’s ecosystem and its inhabitants, their reliability and viability as a source of producing electricity to reduce CO2 emissions, and the feasibility of the legislative laws, mandates and standards regarding renewable energy established by our federal, state and local lawmakers, we present them for your perusal.


The knowledge that we compile is meant to educate and motivate those citizens that want to stop the devastation and deadly spoil that wind factories are leaving in their wake throughout our planet for many decades to come.


The truth will overcome.  We welcome you to join us to help make our voices heard.
