GOING BATTY

August 6 @ 8:30 PM - 11:00 PM

free

This cooperative trip between Flathead Audubon and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will go to a site on Saturday, August 6, from 8:30 PM-11:00 PM with known bat activity where electronic equipment will be used to detect the ultrasonic calls of bats flying overhead. Mist nets will be used to capture bats for closer inspection. Wildlife biologists Lewis Young, Lisa Bate, and Jessy Coltrane will demonstrate the equipment, handle bats captured in mist nets, and talk about the amazing adaptations bats have for navigating, catching food, and hibernating. Participants will not be allowed to touch or handle bats. Headlamps or flashlights are necessary and come with suitable clothing for the evening temperatures as the day cools. To sign up contact Kathy at 406-837-3837 or mtkat67@gmail.com.

The trip is limited to 20 participants and sign up is required. Please note that the trip may be modified or even canceled depending on the COVID situation at the time.
