Letters to the Forest

We are hosting this event at Westmoreland Park located at 7530 SE 22nd Ave, Portland, OR 97202. Come and enjoy an outdoor social with Bark Staff and other nature-loving individuals! We want to discuss what you value about the forests around us, and how all of us interact with the natural world. What can we do to support and manage the Mt. Hood National Forest so that it is truly accessible and welcome to all? How can we creatively show gratitude to the forest and those that currently play a part in its future? How can we make constructive and friendly dialogue? Share a meal, play some lawn games, and take an opportunity to write a letter to Mt. Hood Forest Leadership. 

This event is part of a larger “Climate Action Week” organized by the Pacific Northwest Forest Climate Alliance. “The Pacific Northwest Forest Climate Alliance (The Alliance) comes together with the understanding that in order to protect forests and meaningfully address the climate crisis, we must transform the extractivist culture to achieve sustainable and just societies. Forest Defense is Community Defense: We work together in defense of the Pacific Northwest communities and ecosystems, as we recognize their health and wellbeing are fundamentally interconnected.”
