Controversial Polallie-Cooper Timber Sales on Mt. Hood National Forest canceled

EXCITING NEWS - the controversial Polallie-Cooper Timber Sales on Mt. Hood National Forest have been canceled!

This is a huge victory for BARK, BARK's attorneys, Cascade Resources Advocacy Group, (Chris Winter and Ralph Bloemers), BARK'S co-plaintiffs, the communities reliant upon Crystal Springs Watershed, and all those who enjoy the Cooper Spur area of Mt. Hood! Thank you to the many many volunteers who led hikes, wrote letters, made phone calls and helped raise awareness about this destructive logging project.
