One Month Until Base Camp!

bark: to make known by persistent outcry

Follow Bark on Social Media


One of the top carbon-storing forests in the country, Mt. Hood National Forest’s future management is an important part of averting the most catastrophic effects of climate change. It also brings millions of visitors to our region each year, while providing a domestic water supply for over one million Oregonians.

Bark’s summer Base Camp, August 22 – September 3, is our way of getting more people in the forest to advocate for the protection of this amazing forest.

Sign up for camp right now!

The goal of this camp is to bring people together to gather on-the-ground information about the area threatened by the Forest Service's North Clack project. We’ll be holding a wide variety of free workshops and activities at camp so we can build connections and find intersections between our work and that of other environmental, social, and place-based movements.

This free, public camp will be open to all participants who wish to join for any length of time (even if it’s just one day)! We’ll be camped near Estacada in Mt. Hood's southwest side (exact location to be announced soon).  Our group campsite will be free of charge and family-friendly, thanks to local businesses and supporters who helped us make our summer fundraising goal!

See you in the forest,

P.S. Without taking any input from Gorge communities, Weyerhaeuser has purchased large tracts of forest land in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and is commencing industrial-scale clearcutting on sensitive lands east of Hood River. Please consider participating in Friends of the Columbia Gorge’s campaign to raise awareness about, and ultimately halt this activity!
