Forest Service Open House: Clackamas River District

Date: 
Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

For months now, we’ve been talking about Mt. Hood National Forest’s upcoming Travel Analysis Process (TAP).  Through the TAP, the Forest Service will be taking a much-needed hard look at the Forest’s unmanageable road system - to identify solutions that could minimize unwanted impacts to clean drinking water and wildlife, save taxpayer money, and maintain access for a variety of uses! 

Public input during the TAP will then inform future decisions about projects such as road decommissioning and road-to-trail conversions.  Now is the time to tell the Forest Service that we value healthy ecosystems and quiet recreation over more logging and roadbuilding.

The Forest Service has scheduled a series of public open houses in each Ranger District of the Forest (Clackamas, Zigzag, Barlow & Hood River), with the purpose of sharing and gathering information from the public for the TAP. 

For these open houses, all input regarding areas you are familiar with is welcome.  Bark will also be providing recommendations which we will distribute to Barkers who wish to attend each meeting, and we hope you will consider helping us send a strong message by supporting these recommendations (contact michael@bark-out.org if you’d like more details).

Where: 595 NW Industrial Way, Estacada, OR 97023

The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will end at 7:30 p.m.  These will be held in an informal setting with Forest Service planners, recreation staff, and district leaders.
