Public Bat Monitoring

To assist the DNR with bat research, we will monitor the nature center property for bat presence. 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. Starting times, updates or cancellations will be posted each Monday on our Mosquito Hill Nature Center Facebook page.

G3: Dragonflies and Damselflies
Tuesday, July 5
10:00 – 11:00 AM

damselfly trio

Dragonflies and damselflies are special insects in that they live both in the water and on land during their life cycle. These hungry predators are the lions and tigers of the insect world, eating lots of insect pests. We’ll explore those habitats, find these amazing bugs and talk about their incredible life.

$3/adults, $2/youth
Registration and payment due one week prior.
G3: Looking Under Logs
Tuesday, July 12
10:00 – 11:00 AM

worm in soil

Let’s go exploring! It’s amazing what we might find as we turn logs over to investigate the critters live underneath. This hands-on activity might make some people’s skin crawl as we look, hold and study the life that lives under a log. Dress for the weather with sturdy shoes for some off trail enjoyment.

$3/adults, $2/youth
Registration and payment due one week prior.
