Update: April Bark About Hike: Climate Change and the Zigzag Timber Sale

Sunday, April 19, 2020 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Under the circumstances, our free monthly hikes into Mt. Hood National Forest are changing format! We are working to keep this event and date, while honoring social distancing practices. Stay tuned for more information and thank you for your continued support in the meantime.

Join Bark and 350PDX this month for a hike focused on carbon storage and climate change adaptation in Mt. Hood National Forest! Bark is excited to partner with 350PDX’s new Forest Defense Team to explore the proposed Zigzag Timber Sale, discuss the role of forests in the carbon cycle, advocate for forest management that maximizes carbon sequestration and storage, and enjoy the beauty of Mt. Hood National Forest.

Since the beginning, Bark has offered free, monthly hikes to Mt. Hood National Forest and surrounding public lands. We believe that by witnessing the breathtaking Cascade ecosystem and learning about the many threats it faces, we can build stronger advocates for the protection of our public lands. Our hike leaders are passionate, knowledgeable volunteers who incorporate information about forest ecology and policy with how to get involved in our efforts.

Carpools leave from the Hollywood Grocery Outlet (located a few blocks from the Hollywood Transit Center, at the I-84 exit 2) at 9 am sharp. 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. Bring a lunch, water, and anything else you'll need to stay comfortable in the forest. To protect off-trail resources, we ask you to leave your dog at home.

If you plan to drive and can offer seats to carpool, please review Bark's Expectations for All Drivers.
