July Ecology Club: The Air Around Us

Date: 
Wednesday, July 17, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Did you know that 117 schools in Oregon fall in the worst 10% nationally for exposure to industrial pollution? July's ecology club we will be hearing from Tori Cole from Neighbors for Clean Air to talk about the connections between the air we breathe, the industry influencing it, and the forest we love. Neighbors for Clean Air focuses on monitoring Portland’s air quality, educating the people affected by toxic air quality, and advocating for policies that protect the air around us.

 

At the close of the 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!
