Bats in Your Woods not Your Belfry
Ever wondered where bats go during the day or in the winter? Vermont has nine species of bats that may be roosting under tree bark, in tree cavities, in rocky outcroppings or talus slopes, in caves and abandoned mines, inside barns and attics, and hopefully in your bat house. Join VT Coverts as we host VT Fish and Wildlife Biologist Alyssa Bennett to learn a little background on Vermont’s bats, with an emphasis on the five threatened and endangered species. Find out how you can manage your woodland to enhance the habitat for bats. You can help support these insect-eaters day and night by creating snags, protecting water quality, maintaining foraging corridors, and even properly siting a bat house. Register in advance for this meeting.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. This is Bat Week! If you want to look for other ways to celebrate these marvelous mammals go to Batweek.org.
