Ecology Club: Bat night!

Date: 
Monday, August 17, 2015 -
6:00pm to 9:00pm

Bark will be hosting Ecology Club on Monday, August 17th from 6pm to 9pm (and will continue to meet the second Monday of each month. This month's third Monday is an exception). This month: Bat night! Bats are essential to forest ecosystems for their roles as predators, pollinators and seed dispersers.  Come learn more about these amazing and mysterious creatures, and how to protect their habitat.

Where: Bark office: 351 NE 18th Ave Portland, OR 97232 (next to the Circuit Climbing Gym).

Join us each month to discuss an ecological theme that pertains to Bark’s work on Mt Hood or seasonal skills to give the community a deeper appreciation and understanding of NW ecology. Some months we will have presenters bringing their unique skills to the community. Others, we will work as a group on a predetermined theme to discuss such topics as thinning, fire ecology, wildflowers, birds, road ecology, or other topics the group is inclined to discuss.

At the close of each 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!
