Ecology Club: Volcanoes, June 13th

Join Bark volunteer Heather Fisher in July for a presentation & discussion on Mt. Hood — the volcano!

Mt. Hood is a potentially active stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon. Although the odds remain slim, Mount Hood is considered the Oregon volcano most likely to erupt. As an active volcano, Mt. Hood poses significant volcano, landslide, flood, channel migration and earthquake hazards to nearby communities.

Recent reports assessed the level of monitoring in the Cascades and concluded that most Cascade volcanoes are under-monitored given the threats they pose to communities downstream and downwind. Join us at Ecology Club to learn more about this and other volcanic activity in Oregon!

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!
