Seasonal Adult Hikes- Michigan's Bats

We’ve all witnessed our flying mammal friends darting haphazardly through the twilight skies from our back porches and have heard horror stories of rabies, hair tangles, blood sucking and disease but what’s true and what’s falsehood? Explore the 9 species of bats in Michigan which help keep humans healthy and fed. We will get up close with a bat skeleton to see how they’re able to achieve flight, learn how echolocation works, and learn a few tips and tricks for keeping bats out of our own homes! We will be heading out on the trails to try and spot bats and hear their echolocation sounds with the help of technology. Participants can take home the instructions needed to build their own bat houses. Participants are asked to bring their own flashlights/headlamps and insect repellent.
