Join us as we hold a two week group camp to make exploring the forest easy! Mt. Hood brings nearly five million visitors to our region each year, and provides a domestic water supply for 1.1 million Oregonians. This forest provides habitat for culturally iconic salmon and steelhead, and countless other wildlife species. The immediate area around our camp has spectacular scenic beauty including intact ancient forest, high mountain lakes, and dazzling native plant species.

This camp is family friendly.

Schedule: Checking in at Base Camp

People can arrive as early as 5pm on Wednesday, August 22th to set up group camp. We will begin field work and activities the following day. Each day will begin with a morning orientation for new participants to help prepare for the day ahead. A full schedule will be posted throughout the camp.

We will provide:

A beautiful, free, & primitive campsite (NW Forest Pass will not be necessary to park)
Drinking water
Basic breakfast (oatmeal/fruit)
Coffee and tea
Dinner — We can accommodate many diets (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free), but please come prepared to meet your own more specific dietary needs
Training and information, field guides, etc.
Supplies for groundtruthing and other group activities.

Since our campsite will be primitive (to allow free camping for all), please come prepared for:
No electrical hookups,
No cell service or wifi,
No garbage pickup,
No plumbing (although we will have plenty of water available on site)
No flush toilets (we will be using dug latrines).

Camp with us in the North Clack Timber Sale, just north of Highway 224 on Mt. Hood's south side. Our group campsite will be free of charge (donations appreciated!) and family-friendly, and thanks to generous donations from our supporters and local businesses — breakfast and dinner will be provided! We will be holding a wide variety of free workshops and activities each evening at camp. This campout is our way of encouraging more people to get involved to advocate for the protection this amazing forest. The primary goal of this camp out is to bring people together to gather on-the-ground information about the area threatened by the Forest Service's North Clack Timber Sale project.
