Re: Request for Changes in Renewable Resolution

Dear Chair Kafoury and Commissioners Smith, Vega Pederson, Meieran, and Stegmann,

Thank you for the hard work done this far to shape a #100by50 Renewable Energy Resolution.

We, the undersigned, support the strong progress made so far but believe Multnomah County can do better. Specifically, we request that you amend the resolution prior to June 1 to incorporate our recommended changes to the County’s Renewable Energy Resolution.

The Industry Strikes Back

Tell your representatives, no clearcuts on public land!

Congratulations on a great People's Forest Forum!

On a gloriously sunny Saturday, more than 100 people filled the Sunnyside Community Center to discuss the future of Mt. Hood National Forest at the People’s Forest Forum (event details below).  Attendees learned about fire ecology, the impacts of climate change on forests, how recreationists can become forest advocates, and why the outdated 27-year old forest management plan needs to change!

With nearly two decades of experience bringing people to the forest, Bark is in a unique and compelling position to catalyze our active community and bring the management of these public lands into the movement toward greater resiliency for communities around the region.

Analysis of New Threats to the Forest

Can we say unprecedented disaster?  The barrage of presidential Executive Orders and congressional actions is not easy to keep up with nor is it clear what to do in response. To help ease the overwhelm, I’ve distilled how recent national politicking may affect Mt. Hood National Forest and other federal public land.
