This month, join us for Bat night! Bats are essential to forest ecosystems for their roles as predators, pollinators and seed dispersers. Come learn more about these amazing and mysterious creatures, and how to protect their habitat. Heather Fisher, longtime Bark staff and dedicated volunteer will share with us her experience working with Bats and their habitats.

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!
