Bark’s mission is to transform Mt. Hood National Forest into a place where natural processes prevail, where wildlife thrives and where local communities have a social, cultural, and economic investment in its restoration and preservation.

Color photo of a group of Bark Volunteers posed for the camera sitting on a pile of logged, branchless trees. The looks on each of their faces are stern, as the entire scope of the camera is filled by these giant piles.

Bark defends the forests around the Clackamas River and provides free trainings, resources & tools to the community for free.

Bark volunteers are engaged, dedicated, and make a vital contribution to our work to protect the forests of Mt. Hood.

Solutions abound – we just need the courage, enthusiasm, and political will to implement change.

Contact your legislators and other key decision-makers about restoring beaver habitat to the beaver state!
