Bat Biology and Conservation
Friday, May 13, 2022 | 8 pm
Location: Jericho Center Green
Join the Jericho Conservtion Commission for a presentation on bats with VT Fish and Wildlife biologist, Alyssa Bennet.
Take a walk around the Green and nearby quiet streets as the sun goes down and bat activity starts up around dusk to learn about what bats live in Jericho and how you can manage your home, yard, fields, and forests to support these voracious insect eaters while avoiding any unwanted conflicts.
Providing there is good weather (no heavy rain, strong winds, or temperatures below 45 degrees), we will also be able to listen for bat activity and identify species flying in the air around us using specialized microphones and sonogram software. Dress for a walk on easy terrain and bring a headlamp for this family-friendly event.
