June Bark About: Connecting with Edible and Medicinal Plants Found in the Urban Landscape

Date: 
Sunday, June 14, 2020 - 11:00am to 3:00pm

Tune in to Facebook Live for this event!

As many of us are still sheltering at home, this Bark-About will focus on edible and medicinal plants that can be found in your backyard, your closest green space or easily grown in your garden. Urban farmer and landscaper Rachel Freifelder along with Dr. Lupin DeMuth, ND will lead you on a virtual tour of some of their plant friends growing in their home gardens. We'll then venture out to the forested trails of the Dharma Rain Zen Center in NE Portland. 

For over 20 years, Bark has offered free, monthly hikes to Mt. Hood National Forest and surrounding public lands. We believe that by witnessing the breathtaking Cascade ecosystem and learning about the many threats it faces, we can build stronger advocates for the protection of our public lands. Now, in our efforts to flatten the curve, our free monthly hikes take the form of online discussions with our passionate and knowledgeable volunteers. Each month, a new speaker will interweave information about forest ecology and policy with how to get involved in our efforts to stop commercial logging on Mt. Hood.
