There hasn't been any logging in the Zigzag District of Mt. Hood in almost 25 years. Because of this, and restoration + road decommissioning efforts, the salmon recovery in the Sandy River watershed has had a disproportionately large impact on populations across the Pacific NW. Fast growing, carbon-rich forests are bouncing back from a century of clear cut logging and the recreation opportunities are world-class. 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 Associate Director will give an overview of the threat posed by this project and the process for intervention.

This event is held at the Bark Office. Free + accessible to all.
