Wetlands serve many functions- from biodiversity hotspots, water storage and filtration, aquifer replenishment, wildfire breaks and more. However, wetlands are also notoriously tricky to map, and you can’t protect an ecosystem you don’t know is there! Join us as we gather data about soils, plants and hydrology to assist our wetland partners in mapping wetland areas on Mt. Hood.
We will all meet in Portland, OR at 9 am, coordinate carpooling to the site location from there, and return in time to be at our meetup location between 5 and 6pm. Our final destination will be sent out via email prior to the volunteer day.
This is an in-person event and will follow Bark’s COVID-19 volunteer work safety protocol.
Before registering: Everyone interested in participating in Bark’s wetland mapping efforts is welcome! Please review Bark’s online wetland mapping training materials before attending a field day.
