Acoustic Bat Monitoring Training, Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary, Sarona; April 26, 2018

The Acoustic Bat Monitoring Project was developed to collect data on species presence, distribution, and to identify trends of Wisconsin bat species. All bat species in Wisconsin utilize echolocation to detect, pursue, and capture insect prey as they orient and navigate through the night sky. Because these bats’ echolocation calls are produced above the range of human hearing (ultrasound), we use an acoustic system capable of detecting and recording these high frequency calls while the bats fly through the area. Please join us while we discuss the bats of Wisconsin and demonstrate how to operate the bat detection equipment, followed by conducting a bat walk on the property. This training is for potential volunteers interested in assisting in bat monitoring efforts.

Registration is not necessary, but appreciated.
