March Ecology Club: Stories of Place

Monday, March 13, 2017 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Following on the heels of our day in the forest during this month's Bark About, we will come together to share stories of when we have had meaningful relationships with the land or felt a sense of place. One of the attributes of being human is ability to share stories with one another.

Just as ethnobotanist Gary Paul Nabhan discusses, if we want to have successful restoration, we also need to have meaningful re-story-ation. Come with your stories from Mt Hood and beyond as we use our words in gratitude and reconnection.

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!
