July Bark About: Groundtruthing 201

Sunday, July 12, 2020 - 10:30am to 12:00pm

For part two of our July Groundtruthing training series, prepare to delve into a proposed timber sale’s geography and ecology! We will learn to to read clues amongst the trees, as well as identify what factors contribute to a healthy ecosystem, as well as see the potential problems associated with proposed logging. We will also discuss how to document our obersvations in order to create a compelling case to advocate for the area.  We need good photos, good maps, and good people that know that area of forest well enough to show it to others. This training is intended for people interested in becoming actively engaged in this type of in-the-forest work with Bark and requires no previous experience. 

This groundtruthing training is in two parts:

On Wednesday, July 8th we will meet from 6:00pm to 7:30pm to go over the basics where we'll learn how to research timber sales using Bark's resources and learn how to read timber sale maps in preparation for travelling to the forest.

Sunday, July 12th from 10:30am to 12:00pm is the second part of this training.

Registration is required for both parts, taking place on Zoom. Click here to register. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

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. Learn more about the Rad◦i◦cle Activist Training Program here.
