Wisconsin Bat Monitoring State Wide Bat Count

124 days old

Time: 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Activities: Educational Programs, Wildlife conservation, Wildlife study
Location: Newport SP

Help our state bats by participating in this Citizen Science program. Our hibernating bats are in great danger of being wiped out because of white-nose syndrome (WNS), a white, powdery fungus on the muzzle of infected bats that causes die offs of multiple species of bats in infected hibernation sites. This state wide survey is an important tool to help monitor the number of bats that have been affected by WNS. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to help. We will meet at the Nature Center, Lot 1, for brief instruction. Rain date: July 21st, same time.
