Bark’s successes in protecting Mt. Hood forests and rivers are only possible because of our volunteer organizers, educators, and activists. This event is part of Bark’s Rad◦i◦cle Training Program which empowers individuals to learn valuable skills in forest ecology, public lands advocacy and community organizing. The Organizing Track of Rad◦i◦cle focuses on the tools of advocacy, activism, and public engagement.

Do you ever wonder why 50% of Oregon is managed by the federal government? Or wonder why logging can happen in National Forests, but not National Parks? Are you hearing a lot about forest management and fire, and want to understand the influences that affect both? Do you have other questions about why and how the Forest Service manages our local forests? Do you know how to change forest management if we, the public, don’t like it?

This training, facilitated by Bark’s policy coordinator and staff attorney, Brenna Bell, will answer these questions, and more, as we learn about how half of Oregon came to be managed by the federal government and what factors drive federal agency (mis)management of our public lands.

In this fire edition of the training, Brenna will also discuss causes of the current fires in Oregon and how they may affect federal forest management in the future.
