To assist the DNR with bat research, we will monitor the nature center property for bat presence throughout the summer. We’ll follow a pre-planned route around the property recording bat calls and location with an Anabat detector. Wear closed-toe shoes and long pants/sleeves. Insect repellent is prohibited as it can damage the equipment. Updates or cancellations will be posted each Monday of monitoring on our Facebook page.

When hiking the trails we often see wildlife, but many times we must figure out what kind of animals live in an area by the signs they leave behind. Join naturalist Mike Hibbard for a hike in search of clues animals have left behind. Wear your detective hat as we try to figure out who left various clues.

Cost: $3/adults, $2/youth
Advance registration appreciated but walk-ins also welcome.
