This is the sign up form for Inner Bark, the evening info series that digs beneath the surface of social and ecological happenings in Mt. Hood’s forests.
Past Inner Barks (formerly known as Ecology Club) have featured topics such as: fire ecology, lichens, mushrooms, politics and power in natural resource mapping, knot tying, tree identification, beavers, and much more. Inner Bark features both expert presenters sharing their knowledge and experiences and group-lead discussions on a given topic.
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!
May’s Inner Bark will focus on utilizing the invasive colonizer species: the Dandelion! We’ll have some “dandy” fun looking at the history, uses, and even get crafty with dandelions.
