Demystifying Bats (Back by Midnight)

October 26, 2019

Just in time for Halloween, bat biologist Rachel Burke will lead us through an urban area to uncover just how many bats are lurking in the shadows. Look forward to seeing live bats up close and detect echolocation calls of bats overhead. For this event SWEC is partnering with the student chapter of the wildlife society at NMSU who will sell some spooky baked goods and we will get a chance to hear all about bat ecology. A captivating walk for kids and adults alike! RATING: Easy

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Registration opens 3 weeks before each hike date. Half of the available slots for each trip are reserved for members of the Southwest Environmental Center. Not a member? Join today!
