Join us for a fun spring info session at the Bark Office to learn how to plug in to Bark’s field and campaign work starting in April! We’ll meet together as a community and discuss the exciting ways you can get involved this year. Whether you are just beginning to learn about forest ecosystems and public lands advocacy or are an experienced field biologist or policy analyst, your energy and knowledge are vital to strengthening the public influence over how these ecosystems and treasured wild places are treated by our government.

In three years, Bark has saved 15,000+ acres of the forest surrounding “Mt. Hood” from logging, established a game-changing legal precedent on forests and fire, engaged 30,000+ people around forest ecology and current forest management practices, and worked with state and federal agencies to work towards reintroducing beaver to “Mt. Hood.” The impacts of our forest advocacy are only possible with the countless hours, incredible creativity, and boundless spirit from our volunteers. Let’s keep up the amazing work!
