This evening field trip is an opportunity to learn about our local bat species, how they fit into the ecology of the islands, and how they utilize our preserve lands. Join UW PhD Candidate, Rochelle Kelly who will demonstrate methods used in surveying bat populations, including mist netting and audio monitoring.
We will learn about island bat’s distinguishing features and natural history, as well as questions being asked by researchers who study these remarkable creatures.
Be sure to bring warm clothing and headlamps/flashlights are recommended. This event is presented by San Juan County Land Bank and is free to the public.
Space is limited; please RSVP to Tanja Williamson @ 360.370.7655 or email email@example.com.
