The 2019 Bat Night was a wonderful success! Over 50 people came out to learn more about bats on Saturday, August 17th. Our thanks to Cory Olson for giving a presentation and enabling folks to listen to the bats with bat detectors. Thanks to EBF staff members, Shaye Hill and Claudia Lipski, for leading the bat games, crafts and tours. Finally, thanks also to Judy Boyd for bringing out Betty the Bat so folks could see a bat up close. Betty gave birth to a baby while at Medicine River Wildlife Centre and we were pleased to release the young bat into our Big Brown Bat colony at the site. We checked the box after all the bats had exited last night and it was empty, so the young bat is now flying with its kin!
