November Ecology Club

This November Ecology Club will be all about the trees! More specifically we will go into the 13 most common conifers in Mt Hood National Forest. We will not only cover the basics of conifer ID we will explore the ecology, or lessons of place these trees have to teach us. For example we can gather clues into what type of disturbance may have occurred in times past, what wildflowers or mushrooms may occur at their feet, and even clues about what kind of forest may move in next. Please bring your stories of your favorite NW conifers so we can continue to grow our understanding and relationship with these majestic beings.
