*Our annual mushroom hike is now FULL* Please check our events calendar for more opportunities to get involved with Bark's work to protect Mt. Hood National Forest! https://www.bark-out.org/upcoming-events

November is Bark's annual hike to learn about the role fungus plays in our forests. You should expect to walk up to two miles off trail on this month's hike. Please bring lunch, water, and sturdy boots. And if you'd like to bring home some edible mushrooms bring a knife, basket, and paper bags. The weather is very unpredictable this time of year, so please be prepared for various weather conditions, and bring rain gear.

Space is limited for this hike so you must RSVP to attend. Email michael@bark-out.org with your name, email, phone number and number of people in your car to reserve space(s).


Also note the policy regarding mushroom permits in Mt Hood National Forest - all mushroom gatherers are required to get a permit. However, because our hike is on a weekend, there will likely not be an opportunity to get a permit on the day of the hike. Contact info for Ranger Stations in Mt. Hood is below.

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. If you are willing to drive in our carpool, please review Bark's Driver Safety Expectations before coming.
