April Ecology Club: Wildfire

Monday, April 11, 2016 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Wildfire has been a very misunderstood, but essential and beneficial, aspect of our forests. Only recently has research begun to show wildfire’s true nature and its importance to healthy forest ecosystems. Join Bark volunteers and Portland State University researcher Andrés Holz to discuss the role that fire plays on our public lands and why we must learn to live with it if we want our forests to be healthy and resilient in the face of climate change.

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!
