Public Bat Monitoring
Mondays, June 26, July 24 and August 21
One-half hour after sunset -

big brown bat

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.
