Defending Mt. Hood, Past & Present

Wednesday July 25th, 6pm
Community Room, at the Kennedy School,
5736 NE 33rd Ave, Portland

Sixteen years ago, forest defenders began fighting to keep the Forest
Service from clear cutting great swaths of land at the Eagle Creek Timber
Sale, near Estacada. Ten years ago, they succeeded in stopping this sale,
changing the shape of forest policy in the Mt. Hood National Forest.

Today forest defenders are still fighting to preserve the forests of Mt.
Hood-only this time, we're challenging the misleadingly named "restoration thinning

Join Bark, defenders of Mt Hood National Forest, on July 25th to celebrate
the 10-year anniversary of the victory of Eagle Creek, and learn why we
believe "restoration thinning" is not restoration at all, but instead a
detriment to the forest ecosystem and all the life it supports.
