Fieldwork is Fire Resilience

The forest looks vastly different this year than last, and while this has been especially destabilizing for some, it has also created a unique opportunity for us to connect with an ecosystem that has evolved with fire.

Free forest activist training, book club, Free Mt. Hood committee and more!

Bark Alert: Report from the Field

Between the pandemic and the fires, this is a difficult time for many Barkers. For some, homes and loved ones have been lost, and for many, the places that we treasure are changing significantly. It seems many of us are learning a lot about grief this year. While I am sad that we can’t currently be together in the forest, I want to take a few moments to celebrate Bark’s work and invite you to join us as we continue to grow and adapt with these new landscapes. 

July Bark About: Groundtruthing 201

For part two of our July Groundtruthing training, we will learn to safely play detective amongst the trees, and learn to see all the things that make an ecosystem healthy as well as the potential problems associated with proposed logging.

July Ecology Club: Groundtruthing 101

Groundtruthing involves documenting threats to public forests and finding inconsistencies between what logging plans say and what is actually happening on the ground.

Bark Alert: Watchdogs are Prepared, Whatever the Weather

This winter, all hands have been on deck to challenge the proposed Zigzag Timber Sale. Our volunteers have been busy groundtruthing in the snow, coordinating info sessions for the surrounding communities, and creating effective comments to defend this area.
