Bark Ecology Club: Forest Invertebrates

Monday, September 11, 2017, 06:30pm - 08:30pm
Contact  Call us at 503-331-0374 or email michael@bark-out.org
With well over 1 million known species, insects and other invertebrates eclipse all other forms of life on Earth. The ecological services of insects, such as pollination, are vital to life on this planet. Though they are indisputably the most important creatures on earth, invertebrates are often overlooked. Many people can identify an endangered Bengal tiger, but few can identify an endangered Salt Creek tiger beetle. Join Scott Hoffman Black, the Executive Director of the Xerces Society, to explore why we should be concerned with conserving insect habitat and highlight important ways that each of us can better protect this valuable resource. He will also discuss the science and myths behind managing forest insect pests such as bark beetles.

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!
