This month for Ecology Club we are hosting a discussion on Climate Change by focusing on what is happening today on Mt. Hood. From decreased snow pack to shrinking meadows we are seeing the repercussions of this in real time. After we check in on some of the recent changes we’ll discuss ways of mitigating the effects of climate change. For example ceasing commercial logging, since the act of logging itself is the biggest emitter of carbon in the state of Oregon AND removes the very trees which are storing carbon. We’ll also check in on Bark’s efforts getting beaver back on the mountain to help hold snow melt on the mountain longer into the summer. We’ll see what other ideas we can generate too.
