Watchdogs Dig the Dirt

Barkers!

Do you ever think about how much worse things could be without the watchdogs?

This past week, another dozen forest watchdogs were trained to be the accountability our government depends on. It may be thankless work. Yet, it’s undeniable that all great social change movements in our nation included a few of those tireless souls who will slog through thousands of pages of documents, make a hundred phone calls asking for more documents, and groundtruth every step of a proposal a dozen times.

Groundtruthing 201: Fun in the Forest

Prepare to delve into the proposed timber sale’s geography and ecology. We need good photos, good maps, and good people that know that area of forest well enough to show it to others. This training is intended for people interested in becoming actively engaged in this type of in-the-forest work with Bark, and requires no previous experience.
