We appreciate our supporters: 


And part of what makes this club so special is that members ask questions directly of our speakers and can
expect direct answers and a better understanding of the issue.

All our forums are open to the public and we invite everyone to join and share in the benefits that the club provides.

The name Columbia Basin Badger Club reflects our tenacity to seek out clear information, yet we maintain a sense of
humor and civility as we tackle the tough issues that are before us.

If this makes sense to you then you are just the person that the Badger Club is seeking. 

We invite you to join us.

Discussing Issues That Shape Our Future

Our club never takes sides, but our speakers do!

Want to know more about the Badgers?

History? Who we are? How we decide on forums? Let us tell you!

The Columbia Basin Badger Club is an exciting and vibrant organization dedicated to civil discourse

of the important topics of the day.  We pride ourselves in being non-partisan. 
Our club never takes sides, but our speakers do, and the result is often a lively discussion that
improves our understanding of the world around us.


Speakers at our monthly forums have spanned a wide range of ideas and opinions that have
included legalization of marijuana, same sex marriage, and the proposals to remove the
lower Snake River dams to name just a few. 

And our lineup of topics for 2018 promises to be just as stimulating and enlightening.
