Bark is hiring an Executive Director

Alex P Brown in Mt. Hood National ForestAlex P. Brown is one of the reasons that I became a Barker. In 2003 I went to a Bark volunteer orientation that occurred in a parking lot; what a long way we have come since then! (Orientation this Thursday)

As Mt. Hood maps were spread out on trunks of cars and the many logging proposals were described, I got to know Alex. His tremendous energy and enthusiasm for protecting Mt. Hood's forests was infectious! When he became the Executive Director in 2005 I knew that Bark, and the forests we all love, would benefit.

In July, Alex will step down as Executive Director to spend more time with family and to pursue other passions. While I'm excited to see him continue his life's journey, his departure marks the chapter's end to a crucial period for the organization. During Alex’s time at Bark, we have protected Mt. Hood from off-road vehicle damage, logging roads, a gas pipeline, a Nestlé water bottling proposal, and clearcuts (until now). And Bark has helped thousands of people, just like me, to become effective forest activists. Thank you Bark, and thank you Alex!

Bark is now accepting applications to become our next Executive Director. We are excited to identify the right individual to begin Bark's next chapter. Information and application instructions are on our website.

Applications are accepted until June 30. Please share with your networks today! (Share on Facebook)
