October Ecology Club: Rethinking “Public” Land and “National” Forests

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

In this virtual Ecology Club, we will watch and discuss a selection of short videos, with the goal of unpacking and examining the dominant (settler-colonial) narrative of “public” land and “national” forests. Participants will be asked to engage actively in self-reflection and small-group conversation.

Join us online the second Wednesday of each month for Ecology Club! We discuss an ecological themes related to Bark’s work on Mt Hood or seasonal skills to give the community a deeper appreciation and understanding of NW ecology. Some months feature presenters, who bring their unique skills to the community. Other times, we will work as a group on such topics as thinning, fire ecology, wildflowers, birds, road ecology, or other ecological knowledge.

At the meeting's close, we leave time open to further explore the topics of the evening, delve deeper into Bark's work to protect Mt Hood, and learn about what you can do to protect Mt. Hood National Forest!

This event is free + open to the public.
