Located in Portland, Oregon, and founded in 1999, Bark is the resource for community action to protect the forests and rivers surrounding Mt. Hood. We prioritize grassroots organizing and believe in the power of an engaged public.

Our name originates from the “barker,” who stands before the public and uses persistent outcry to call attention. We are a group of Barkers, ensuring that the public hears about all events, good and bad, occurring in the Mt. Hood National Forest.

Bark seeks to add staff members with strong capacities for innovation, autonomy, and communication and who prioritize anti-racism and environmental justice in their personal growth and professional development.

Bark does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, volunteers, subcontractors, and vendors who are willing to engage in this process of equity, justice, and accountability with us.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Bark staff, volunteers, and supporters all share a deep love for the forest and acknowledge that while people have a wide range of perspectives and experiences that connect us all to the forest, the values of white, settler-colonial culture dominate the perspective and goal setting for most environmental organizations. Bark is committed to shifting this dominant perspective and creating a workplace, mission, and vision that empower people from diverse backgrounds.

Bark affirms that these are the rightful homelands of the Multnomah, Mollala, Kalapuya, Chinook, Wyam, Clackamas, Tenino, Wasco, Wishram, Tiah, Paiute, and the many other Native people who live here and who have always lived here, who have always belonged to and cared for this land and whose bold resistance to colonial oppression should guide us all.
