Zigzag Timber Sale Campaign Meeting #2

Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

There hasn't been any logging in the Zigzag District of Mt. Hood in almost 25 years. Fast growing, carbon-rich forests are bouncing back from a century of clear cut logging and the recreation opportunities are world-class. Salmon recovery in the Sandy River watershed has had a disproportionately large impact on populations across the Pacific NW. ​Is it really a good idea to bring large-scale, mature forest harvest back to Zigzag? Unfortunately, the Mt. Hood Forest Management Plan designates much of this well-loved area for commercial logging and directs the Forest Service to 'get out the cut'. For now, the only way to stop this senseless destruction is people power.

Meet with Bark staff and volunteers to plug in to this campaign to keep large-scale, commercial logging out of Zigzag! Bark's Forest Watch Coordinator will give an overview of the threat posed by this project and the process for intervention. Attendees will be able to sign up for different roles, responsibilities, and actions to take over the next few months.
