Do Good for Mt. Hood this Earth Day


Hi! My name is Briana, and I'm the new Development Director at Bark! As the newest Barker in the pack, it's been a joy to meet the many volunteers, supporters, and forest sustainers committed to our work.

I know today is April Fool's day, but we aren't kidding when it comes to growing our activist community. Each year, Earth Day reignites, mobilizes, and unites people from across the world in the fight for a healthy planet. This year, Bark is collaborating with Earth Day Oregon to broaden our Bark community and partner with local businesses in support of Bark's mission to protect and restore Mt. Hood National Forest.

The health of Mt. Hood National Forest impacts as us all  as the most visited forest in the U.S., these unique and sensitive ecosystems provide drinking water to over 1 million people, act as carbon sinks to mitigate the impacts of climate change, and provide habitat to thousands of native plants and animals. 

That's why we're calling onto you to do good for Mt. Hood this Earth Day!

Earth Day Oregon is an initiative created to increase the impact of Earth Day by partnering sustainably-minded businesses together with Earth-focused nonprofits to amplify support for organizations that work to protect the planet.
