This event is part of Bark's Rad◦i◦cle Training Program which empowers individuals to learn valuable skills in forest ecology, public lands advocacy and community organizing.

What is Rad◦i◦cle?

Rad◦i◦cle {the first root of a seedling to emerge during germination} is Bark’s free training program that empowers individuals to learn valuable skills in forest ecology, public lands advocacy, and community organizing. Since 1999, Bark has provided opportunities for the public to be active in decisions affecting our public lands, from boots-on-the-ground trainings in groundtruthing proposed timber sales to understanding the NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) processes and generating public comments on Forest Service actions. Rad◦i◦cle is an expansion of established Bark trainings and is designed to present the diverse skill set and tools necessary for digging deeper into forest defense; to protect Mt. Hood National Forest and beyond.
