All About Bats: Cacapon

July 27 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 pm

Bats are amazing mammals that fly. They are a highly effective natural form of insect control. Studies have shown that bats can catch and consume large quantities of insects. A little brown bat can catch 500 mosquitoes per hour and big brown bats are estimated to consume up to 3,000 to 5,000 insects in a single night!

Join guest naturalist Aubrey Bartman from Coopers Rock State Forest for an evening program “All About Bats” on July 27, 2022 at 8:00 p.m. Bartman’s program includes use of an echolocator that identifies different species calls. Her passion for bats comes from first hand experience with bat studies. Her program includes anatomy of a bat, how to get a bat out of the house, plans for building bat boxes, and white-nose syndrome, a devastating disease causing bat populations to decline.
