Bark's successes in protecting Mt. Hood forests and rivers are only possible because of our volunteer organizers, educators, and activists. This event is part of Bark's Rad◦i◦cle Training Program which empowers individuals to learn valuable skills in forest ecology, public lands advocacy and community organizing. The Organizing Track of Rad◦i◦cle focuses on the tools of advocacy, activism, and public engagement.

Forest Policy 101

Where: Bark office, 351 NE 18th Ave

When: Thursday, February 22, 6-8 pm

Do you ever wonder why 50% of Oregon is managed by the federal government?  Or wonder why logging can happen in National Forests, but not National Parks?  Do you know if clearcutting is legal, and whether Spotted owls are really protected?

Do you have other questions about why and how the Forest Service manages our local forests?  Do you know how to influence the management if we, the public, don’t like it?

This training, facilitated by Bark's policy coordinator and staff attorney, Brenna Bell, will answer all these questions, and more, as we learn about how and why federal agencies (mis)manage our public lands.

Please contact brenna@bark-out.org for questions, or to let me know you’re coming to the training!
