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.
Bottom Line for Portland
Bark’s broad community is the million+ people who drink water from Mt. Hood National Forest (MHNF), living primarily in the four counties around Mt. Hood and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. Our more immediate communities are the 25,000 people who receive regular communications from Bark, and the hundreds who participate annually in our hikes, fieldwork and educational offerings. In three years, Bark has: saved 15,000-plus acres of Mount Hood’s forest from logging, established a game-changing legal precedent on forests and fire, engaged 30,000-plus people around forest ecology and current forest management practices, and worked with state and federal agencies to reintroduce beavers to Mount Hood. Bark's free, annual programs train hundreds of volunteers in forest policy and field surveying, empowering the public to protect the ecosystems that support us all.
“Bark has given me a way to transform my love for the forest into defense for the forest. Through their programming, I get to lead free public hikes, learn and share knowledge of forest ecology and policy, and train other volunteers. Bark helps me be a better advocate for Mount Hood National Forest.” —Mia Pisano
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Bark is centering racial justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in our revisioning process to promote cultural transformation and a paradigm shift that results in long-term and meaningful practices based in anti-racism and an approach to dismantle white supremacy. There are three specific outcomes we seek to achieve in 2021. First, the creation of and continued support for a BIPOC caucus that is a powerful body of leadership with direct influence on decisions concerning how dynamics of race and oppression are addressed at all levels of Bark’s work. This will occur through the creation of protocols, an antiracist training program, and evaluation process, all of which will be determined and evaluated by the BIPOC caucus. Second, Bark will ensure staff and volunteers in this caucus are supported via increased access to resources that enhance their well-being and leadership development. Third, Bark will develop enforceable expectations that contribute to an antiracist paradigm shift and dismantling of white supremacy throughout the organization, which will require a permanent mandatory annual antiracist training, and creation and implementation of a EDI centered framework for revisioning and strategic planning.
