Capture bats for closer inspection

From 8:30 pm until 11:00 pm

FREE and open to the public

This cooperative trip between Flathead Audubon and MT Fish Wildlife and Parks will go to a site with known bat activity where electronic equipment will be used to detect the ultrasonic calls of bats flying overhead, and mist nets will be used to capture bats for closer inspection.  Wildlife biologists, Lewis Young, Lisa Bate and Chris Hammond will demonstrate the equipment, handle bats captured in the 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.  Wear suitable clothing for evening temperatures.
