Species Spotlight: Bat Monitoring

March 23 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Free
FPWC Headquarters
Bats are important—if underappreciated—members of our ecological community. Because they are nocturnal they often escape our attention. If you are curious about these night-flying mammals, join local naturalist and citizen scientist Barbara Williams for a closer examination of the several species of bats that occur in Winnebago County. And learn how you might get involved in monitoring these fascinating creatures. Guided group bat monitoring field sessions using the echometer will be offered for  volunteers and the public throughout the summer.
Pre-register for this session online by clicking HERE no later than Thursday, March 21st  if you wish to reserve a printed copy of the instructional materials at the event.  Walk-ins are always welcome, though space is limited.
This session is free and open to anyone interested in learning about bats; however, those interested in volunteering as an official FPWC Bat Monitor will need to complete our volunteer application.
