Riverside Fire

Living in a Land of Fire

We need to change the policies that are still embedded in the culture of fire suppression to reflect what has always been true: This is a land of fire and we need to learn to live with it.

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: Fire Ecology, Smoke Safety + Community Resources

Through the haze, we want to offer some clarity on what we know about the fire in Oregon’s forests and to share resources on what we can all do right away to protect ourselves and to help those with the greatest need right now.
