Eptesicus fuscus

Saturday, July 23rd
Location TBD 

Curious about bats? Would you like to learn more? Join us for a summer Bat Walk led by expert Stuart Perlmeter. Wildly popular last year, the walk will provide opportunities to see bats up close as well as to view them wild in the wetlands--even to hear them using special bat detectors! This is an excellent event for children. Participants should bring sturdy shoes, water, and curiosity.

Registration is required for this FREE event, so please make sure to contact WREN soon to reserve your spot. To register, please call (541) 338-7047. Location is to be determined. WREN will contact registrants with the location and directions prior to the event.
