Palomar Withdraws Its Pipe Line Proposal

At 1pm this afternoon, Palomar withdrew its proposal to build its 220-mile pipeline through Oregon's best farmland, most pristine rivers, and 47 miles of the beautiful Mt. Hood National Forest!
At 1pm this afternoon, Palomar withdrew its proposal to build its 220-mile pipeline through Oregon's best farmland, most pristine rivers, and 47 miles of the beautiful Mt. Hood National Forest!

For over three years Bark has tenaciously fought this threat to Mt. Hood National Forest, challenging NW Natural's (one of Palomar's backers) belief that our ecosystems should be sacrificed for more fossil fuel infrastructure. Bark is proud to say that your time and financial support has paid off. Thank you for supporting Bark during these times.

What's next?

Celebrate! We saved the Clackamas River, Fish Creek, the Pacific Crest Trail, and towering old growth forests!

Stay tuned- Bark is currently speaking to media outlets, decision makers, and will be updating our website regularly this week.

Donate- Your financial support made this victory possible, and your support now will allow Bark to retool and shift resources to other critical issues facing Mt. Hood like the Nestle water bottling proposal.

Oh behalf of the trees, rivers, animals, and our allies in rural Oregon who put their lives on hold while NW Natural kept promoting the Palomar Pipeline, yaaaahooooo!!!
