February Bark About: Wildlife Tracking with Cascadia Wild

Sunday, February 23, 2020 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Join Bark and Cascadia Wild this month for a winter tracking hike in Mt. Hood National Forest! Cascadia Wild's work is dedicated to teaching people about the natural world and inspiring personal connection to nature, while Bark is dedicated to protecting Mt. Hood National Forest. Learn the art of animal tracking and how to help protect our threatened, local forests.

We anticipate snow for this hike, so PLEASE remember to bring extra layers of wool clothes, socks and warm boots. This hike is likely a snowshoe hike, bring them along if you have a pair! If you are interested in the hike and need snowshoes, Bark has a few pairs to loan out for the day or Next Adventure also rents out snowshoes for affordable prices.

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.

Carpools leave from the Hollywood Grocery Outlet (located a few blocks from the Hollywood Transit Center, at the I-84 exit 2) at 9 am sharp. If you are able to drive, we greatly appreciate your contribution to helping make a successful hike. If you are looking for a ride, please come prepared to reimburse your driver. Bring a lunch, water, and anything else you'll need to stay comfortable in the forest. To protect off-trail resources, we ask you to leave your dog at home.

If you plan to drive and can offer seats to carpool, please review Bark's Expectations for All Drivers.
