Seeking New Board Members!

Bark envisions a future where the forests and people connected to them are resilient to a changing climate and thriving through reciprocity, ecological regeneration, and economies grounded in environmentally just management of the land.

Bark is celebrating its 25th anniversary as a community institution dedicated to protecting and defending the lands now known as Mt Hood National Forest. We are also in an ongoing process of becoming an anti-racist organization that leads with racial equity and centers environmental justice. To support Bark’s ongoing evolution, we are looking for individuals to serve on the Board of Directors who care deeply about Mt. Hood National Forest and its surrounding ecosystems and communities, who hold a commitment to dismantling oppression in all its forms, and who are actively advancing social, racial, and environmental justice. 

We are open to individuals with a variety of skill sets and experience, and are also happy to support first-time board members in learning about board service and nonprofit governance. In particular, we are looking for folks with legal, nonprofit fundraising, advocacy, and finance experience, and who represent a diversity of lived experiences. 

To apply to join Bark’s board, please complete this short application form, and a board member will follow up with you. If you have any questions, please contact Abigail Singer at or Nicki Dardinger at
