BAT NIGHT A SUCCESS!
A small but enthusiastic crowd of people came to EBF on the evening of Saturday, August 1 to participate in our annual bat night. EBF staff Shaye Hill and Claudia Lipski started off the evening with crafts and a site tour. Cory Olson of the Alberta Community Bat Program (ACBP) then gave a bat talk before distributing bat detectors to each cohort so they could "see" the bats flying around. The bats emerged a bit later than expected but delighted observers when they zipped overhead.
Our thanks to Cory (left) and ACBP for assisting us in our efforts to conserve local bats and leading the event. Our thanks also to all the visitors who willingly stayed out late and endured hungry mosquitoes to learn about bats!
