Join us after sunset for our inaugural Bat Walk in honor of Bat Week. Bat Week is dedicated to learning about the important roles that bats play in nature.
This hike offers visitors the chance to learn about these flying mammals while using special detectors to record their echolocation calls. Guests will be able to use the Echo Meter Touch 2 and the Wildlife Acoustics app to record bats’ ultrasonic echolocation calls. This app helps with the identification of calls as well as shows the call patterns.
To end the night, we will enjoy a campfire and s’mores under the stars. We recommend that guests bring flashlights, closed toe shoes, protective clothing (pants/long sleeve shirts), and bug spray.
Cost: $15, Ages 4 & older. Free for Deering Estate Foundation Members. Please meet at the Visitor Center.
