Bats! Just hearing the word typically brings to mind vampires, disease, and dark wings swooping down to tangle in your hair. But what are they really? During this program, we will dispel some of these myths and learn that bats are not the ferocious blood-sucking creatures of the night, but voracious marauders of nocturnal crop and forest pests. We'll do bat occupancy checks on bat houses, discuss the different types of bats, and then try to find and identify the different types of bats around us with bat echolocation detectors as we walk the trails. Please bring a headlamp or flashlight and wear appropriate footwear.
