Forest Policy Crash Course

Date: 
Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Who owns our public lands?  Who manages them?  How can we influence the management if we, the public, don’t like it?  How did it get to be this way?  This training, facilitated by Bark's staff attorney, Brenna Bell, will answer all these questions, and more, as we learn about how and why the Forest Service and BLM (mis)manage our public lands. Attend this training if you are interested in engaging in the public process on lands management, or simply want to be more informed about the law and politics that influences current forest management.

Be prepared for some wonky legal jargon to be de-coded, some feelings of frustration to well up, and to gain few more tools to help you vent that frustration in constructive ways.  Contact Brenna at 503-331-0374 or brenna[at]bark-out.org for more information.

Suggested pre-requisite: Volunteer orientation or previous experience volunteering for Bark.

Location: Bark office, 205 SE Grand, Suite 207 (above the East End Bar)
