Bark Hike Leader Training

Saturday, May 4, 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Do you love sharing your enthusiasm for Mt. Hood with others? Ever considered leading a Bark hike? At this hike leader training, we will provide you with all the tools you need to facilitate a meaningful and fun experience in the forest. You will recieve a primer in navigation, emergency preparedness, and the art of crafting a conservation-themed hike tailored to a broad audience.

Since the beginning, Bark has offered free, monthly hikes to Mt. Hood National Forest and surrounding public lands. We believe that by witnessing the breathtaking Cascade ecosystem and learning about the many threats it faces, we can build stronger advocates for the protection of our public lands. Our hike leaders are passionate, knowledgeable volunteers who incorporate information about forest ecology and policy with how to get involved in our efforts!

Our monthly Bark About hikes are oftentimes the first events some of our fiercest advocates have attended in Mt. Hood National Forest, and for some have been life-changing events.

This training will take place in the forest, and space is limited - please RSVP with Michael or at (503) 331-0374 if you're interested, and for location details.

This event is part of Bark's Rad◦i◦cle Training Program, Bark’s free training program that empowers individuals to learn valuable skills in forest ecology, public lands advocacy, and community organizing. Check here to learn more about Rad◦i◦cle.
