Radicle Activist Training: Defensive Campaign Planning

Date: 
Thursday, November 14, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm
Bark's volunteer organizers, educators, and activists are the force behind our successful campaigns against destructive logging of the forests of Mt. Hood. This training will focus on Bark's defensive forest campaign strategy to stop logging in Mt. Hood. 
 
The Forest Service is ramping up logging for the first time in 20 years on the Zigzag District of Mt. Hood National Forest. This signals the end of an informal moratorium on logging in the area since the incredibly controversial Enola Hill timber sale. Those who've frequented this area over the last two decades may be shocked to learn that the Forest Management Plan was never updated to protect this popular recreation area and the headwaters of Still Creek and the Sandy, Salmon, and Zigzag rivers. For this training, we will workshop a campaign plan for the Zigzag Timber Sale and identify the initial actions and steps for volunteers to plug into this winter.
 
This workshop is part of Rad◦i◦cle, Bark's activist training program. With courses on forest ecology, forest management policy, timber sale monitoring, forest first aid and hike leading, public lands advocacy and community organizing, Rad◦i◦cle is designed to cultivate powerful forest defenders who are ready to take action to protect clean water, biodiversity, and the incredible forest ecosystems where we live and around the world.
