ADULT NATURE PROGRAM 

Bats are misunderstood! Join Biologist & Ranger Eric Powers as he de-mystifies the species with a close up look at our local bats here on the Preserve. Though bats are a natural predator of disease-carrying mosquitoes, there is fear surrounding these beneficial flying mammals. Weather permitting, we’ll take an early evening walk on the trails in search of live bats where you’ll learn how biologists study bats: with echolocation. A special guest bat researcher will demonstrate “mist netting” – a method of catching and releasing live bats as part of his on-going scientific research.
