June Bark About to Jazz Timber Sale

Join Bark volunteer Jos Vaught as he takes us back into the Jazz Timber Sale to explore what 2000 acres of logging could do in the most geologically unstable watershed in all of Mt. Hood. Bark has groundtruthed 2000 acres of proposed logging and continues to monitor and discover problems with the project, and we'd love to share what we've learned.

This hike is especially important as we are anticipating the Forest Service's final decision any day now.

You should expect to walk about two miles on this month's hike, with moderate elevation gain and a bit of scrambling off trail. Please bring lunch, water, and sturdy boots. We will be going up in elevation on this hike, so don't forget extra layers of clothes and water resistant gear.

Carpools will meet at the Hollywood Trader Joe's, 4121 NE Halsey in Portland at 9am sharp. It is across the street from the Hollywood Transit Center, near the I-84 exit 2. If you are able to drive, we greatly appreciate your contribution to helping make a successful hike. If you are looking for a ride, please come prepared to reimburse your driver. If you would like to try to arrange a meet up closer to the forest, please contact the Bark office the week before the hike.

Since the beginning, Bark has offered free, monthly hikes to Mt. Hood National Forest and other surrounding public lands. We believe that by witnessing the breathtaking Cascade ecosystem and learning about the many threats facing it, we can build stronger advocates for the protection of our public lands. Our hike leaders are passionate, knowledgeable volunteers who incorporate information about forest ecology and policy with how to get involved in our efforts!
