June Ecology Club: Lichen Night

Saturday, June 8, 2019 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

For our June Ecology Club, we will explore the unbelievable world of lichens! Lichens do everything from "fixing" atmospheric nitrogen to providing key nesting materials for birds.  Are lichens organisms or ecosystems? Are they fungal greenhouses or algal farmsteads?  Find out for yourself this month with Bark's lichenologist Maysa Miller, who will be sharing lichens we'll likely see on our Lichen hike on Sunday, June 9th.

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!
