April Bark About

Geological wonders highlight the unique Molalla River watershed. For several years Bark has been working with other organizations and individuals in the Molalla River area to stop the Annie's Cabin Timber Sale, which threatens nearly 600 acres of forest and the popular Molalla River Shared Use Trail.
Most recently, unsuccessful efforts to get the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to comply with environmental laws has forced us into court over this controversial logging project.

The case will be heard in the coming months. In the meantime, join Bark this coming Sunday, April 13th to explore unique rock formations, a beaver dam pond, and a hard-to-find waterfall. We will venture into several of the proposed Annie's Cabin timber sale units along the way.

Please note that the hike will have a steep incline for about 20 minutes along a forest road. We suggest waterproof or resistant boots or shoes for this hike. Carpools leave from the Daily Grind (4026 SE Hawthorne) at 9 am, so please arrive early enough for us to can check you in, arrange rides and give a brief overview of the day's plans. Remember to wear appropriate clothing and to bring lunch and water.

Join Bark on the 2nd Sunday of every month as we explore an upcoming timber sale on Mt. Hood or surrounding public lands. We leave the Daily Grind, in Southeast Portland at Hawthorne & 40th at 9:00 am. If you can drive, great, if not, we'll make sure you have a ride.
