Native Plants & Pollinators of Mt. Hood

Native Plants and Pollinators of Mt. Hood

Date: Thursday, April 27

Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Location: Bark office, 351 NE 18th Ave Portland, OR 97232 (next to the Circuit Climbing Gym)

Leader: David Lebo
Description: Bark will be co-sponsoring this event with the Portland Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon (NPSO-PDX) to explore the expansive world of the pollinators and their plants. Pollinators are responsible for assisting over 80% of the world’s flowering plants. Without them, humans and wildlife wouldn’t have much to eat or look at! Animals that assist plants in their reproduction as pollinators include species of ants, bats, bees, beetles, birds, butterflies, flies, moths, and wasps. This event will include a presentation by David Lebo, Lead Botanist for the Mt. Hood National Forest, who is collaborating on a project with Bark and NPSO-PDX for the collection of seeds of plants which promote pollinators in our backyard forest. Come learn about what types of habitats and plant species these important creatures need to continue to function within their critical roles. Then learn how to get involved with Bark’s upcoming work to restore pollinator habitat on Mt. Hood! Call us at 503-331-0374 or email at michael@bark-out.org to reserve your spot.
