Local bat enthusiasts Ellen Ravkind and Anne Alderfer along with bat expert Kate Rugroden from the Bat World Sanctuary will provide the program. Kate will talk about the bats in this area and the role the sanctuary plays in education and rehabilitation. Then Ellen will educate us on the echo location devices from Wildlife Acoustics (Echo Meter Touch 2) as a prolog to Ellen and Anne leading a hike looking for bats.
Wear sturdy shoes or boots, maybe bring bug spray and water, and especially a good flashlight or headlamp with fresh batteries. The walk back will be in the dark, so a good light will be essential.
