December Ecology Club: Conifers of Mt. Hood

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Our December Ecology Club will be all about the trees! Join us as we discuss the 13 most common conifers in Mt Hood. How many can you name off the top of your head?
Gradey Proctor
Gradey Proctor, long time Bark volunteer and co-founder of the Arctos School of Herbal and Botanical Studies, will lead us through the basics of conifer identification (ie. bark, needles, and cones), and lead an exploration on the ecology, or lessons of place these native trees have to teach us. For example we can gather clues into what type of disturbance may have occurred in times past, what wildflowers or mushrooms may occur at their feet, and even clues about what kind of forest may move in next!

Bring stories of your favorite NW conifers so we can continue to grow our understanding and relationship with these majestic beings!

Where: Bark Office, 351 NE 18th Ave. Portland, OR 97206
When: Every second Wednesday from 6:30-8:30pm.

All of Bark's events are free, family-friendly, and open to the public.
