Meet the Outreach Team

When a Bark outreach representative comes to your neighborhood or you meet them on the street, it’s a unique opportunity to ask a real person what is happening in your beautiful backyard. 

Bark’s field outreach representatives are well versed in Bark’s work and can update you on the latest threats and victories we face in Mt. Hood National Forest. They have engaged with over two hundred thousand households in the past decade! Walking our neighborhoods empowers and organizes community members to take action a join Bark’s grassroots movement. The vast majority of Bark donors first find out about us through our Outreach Team. Collectively these donors provide 81% of Bark’s total funding! More importantly, Bark’s neighborhood outreach has grown our base of support to over 30,000 Barkers ready to help Mt. Hood’s forests and rivers. 

Bark’s outreach representatives gather signed postcards, collect hand-written letters in opposition of timber sales, and recruit volunteers for our field and city work. They invite the community to our monthly events occuring in town and in the forest. They also connect with people who are able to help Mt. Hood in other unique ways. 

If an outreach team member knocks on your door, take advantage of this unique opportunity to engage in Bark’s work. Ask questions, make a tax deductible donation, and be kind. This work is essential for building our movement, but it is hard work. Extra thoughtful things to do when an outreach team member is at your door include asking how they are doing and if they need to use the restroom, offering a snack or to refill their water bottle, or just thanking them for doing the work. Every day, our outreach team connects with amazing community members like you and works to spread hope for the future of Mt. Hood National Forest.
