February Ecology Club: Falling in Love with Plant Medicine

Wednesday, February 14, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Join Missy Rohs of the Arctos School of Herbal & Botanical Medicine for an exploration of our connection to and interdependence with plants.  We’ll talk about some plants and their medicinal uses and then delve into ways to deepen our relationships with the flora that surrounds us.  Like any good relationship, the human-plant connection is strongest when it’s built on reciprocity and a multidimensional understanding of each unique individual.  We’ll caress plants, whisper sweet nothings to them, and feel what they have to offer in return.

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!
