    Current Wars, New Wars, Street Wars

    The forest plays a crucial role in the fate of our communities. It is time for us to take an active role in planning for the future of Mt. Hood!

    The People’s Forest Forum 2017 will address the critical need to expand environmental protections for Mt. Hood National Forest in preparation for regional climate instability. With mounting political obstacles to ecological management, the public must create effective and transparent avenues with which to have a hand in the future of Mt. Hood National Forest. The Forum is a venue to amplify our collective aim of ecologically responsible land management for the forest. Focusing on climate change, clean water and recreation, the Forum will offer expert speakers and presentations, facilitated break-out groups and informal discussions, creating space and resources for participants to engage in defending and restoring local public lands.

    We will share, learn, and build the necessary resources to amend the Mt. Hood National Forest Plan. With support and input from communities all around the forest Bark is working to craft a vision for Mt. Hood that prepares for climate change and ensures that the values of our communities take priority over commercial extraction projects.

    Bark will be using the information generated at the Forum to develop recommendations for substantial improvements to the outdated Mt. Hood National Forest management plan and your input is crucial!
