Base Camp 2018 Details

Starting next week, from August 22-September 3, Bark will be hosting Base Camp – an amazing chance to get involved with the critical work to defend the forest surrounding Mt. Hood, to learn from and connect with folks working towards environmental justice in our region, and to enjoy and learn about our backyard forest ecosystem.

We will be camping in a free undeveloped campsite in Mt. Hood National Forest, near the proposed North Clack Timber Sale, close off Highway 224 near Estacada. Campers will spend their days groundtruthing, exploring the surrounding forest, and attending workshops from our friends and guests on a variety of topics. On Tuesday, August 21st we will post the exact location with driving direction; camp will be about an hour from Portland.  

Sound like something you’d like be part of? Here’s how you can prepare for this ambitious endeavor:

  1. Let us know you’re coming, and we'll send you important updates to prepare, including directions to our camp.
  2. Donate group camping supplies and food.  Bark will provide breakfast and dinner each day, and we’re especially looking for fresh produce and other locally-sourced food.  Here’s our wishlist.
  3. Sign up for a carpool. Whether you’re driving or need a ride, this is important!
  4. Read our camp ground rules.
  5. Pack for camp. Here’s what you need to bring.
  6. Check our camp programming schedule!
  7. Download Avenza. This app will help you survey the North Clack Timber Sale. After that, upload this map into your mobile device.
  8. Spread the word!

See you there!
