Bark’s mission is to transform Mount 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
Last year, Bark activated more than 24,000 people around Mount Hood public lands management, stopping 1,000-plus acres of logging. We hold more than 100 free, public events each year, including hikes, ecology classes, policy workshops, campouts and volunteer training to empower public action to protect the vast ecosystem that supports us.

“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
