Native Plants and Pollinators of Mt Hood

Date: 
Thursday, April 27, 2017 -
7:00pm to 9:00pm

Bark will be co-sponsoring this event with the Portland Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon (NPSO-PDX) as part of Portland's Native Plant Appreciation Week to delve into the wonderful world of the pollinators and their plants. Pollinators are responsible for assisting over 80% of the world's flowering plants. Without them, humans and wildlife wouldn't have much to eat or look at! Animals that assist plants in their reproduction as pollinators include species of ants, bats, bees, beetles, birds, butterflies, flies, moths, wasps, as well as other unusual animals.

This event will include a presentation by David Lebo, Lead Botanist for the Mt. Hood National Forest, who is collaborating on a project with Bark and NPSO-PDX for the collection of seeds of plants which promote pollinators in our backyard forest. Come learn about what types of habitats and plant species these important creatures need to continue to function within their critical roles. And then learn how to get involved with Bark's upcoming work to restore pollinator habitat on Mt. Hood!
