Riverside Fire Information Resources

The Clackamas River watershed is a favorite place for many Barkers — we have hiked, camped, fished, rafted, groundtruthed all over this region, from Eagle Creek to the Collawash. And now it has changed.  As the immediate threat to homes and communities from the Riverside Fire has subsided, we are trying to understand where it burned, how it burned, and what this will mean for the forest of the future.  Bark has been gathering information and resources to help answer these questions, and we'd like to share a few with you.  As we learn more, we'll share 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.
