April Ecology Club: Birds of Mt. Hood

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Birds have been described as everything from "bellwethers of environment health" to "the gateway drug for naturalists." In our April Ecology Night we'll explore the keys to bird identification, learn what species to watch for in the Mt. Hood region, and learn a little about new technology that is making birding more fun and accessible for the digital age.   Along the way, Brodie Cass Talbott, an Oregonian who has birded across four continents, will explain why 2018 is "The Year of the Bird" and why bird appreciation and conservation are more important than ever.

At the close of the meeting we will leave time open to further explore the topics of the evening, delve deeper into Bark's work to protect Mt Hood and browse the Bark library. Our library is more than a physical space; it is also intangible, represented by volunteers who are knowledgeable and accessible for people interested in learning more about our work, ecology, public lands management and advocacy. Come peruse our newly acquired selection of resources on everything from hiking to climate justice, and learn about what you can do to protect Mt. Hood National Forest!
