Full Moon Bat Chat
October 20, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Celebrate the full moon at Lake Paran while learning all about bats!
Local bat expert and VT Fish and Wildlife technician, Kerry Monahan, will lead a talk about Vermont bat species followed by a night time walk where guests will use a handheld bat detector to listen for bat calls. There will be a real bat box and a bat mount. And of course, cider and other refreshments.
This will be a fun, educational event suitable for kids and adults of all ages to kick off International Bat Week and celebrate the Halloween season. The much misunderstood bat is an important mammal as they are both pollinators and pest controllers for our ecosystem. It is vital that we all learn how to protect them!
