About the event
Date - Saturday July 22, 2023
Time - 7:45PM
Location - Dahl Forest * Participants will meet at the main entrance to Dahl Forest. We will walk approximately 2km in total. Please contact our office if you would like to participate and have mobility concerns as we can make arrangements to get you closer to the main area of bat activity.
All eight species of bats found in Ontario have been identified in Haliburton County. However bat populations are declining for a variety of reasons and 4 out of 8 species are listed as endangered. In 2021 HHLT recorded a number of bats at Dahl Forest and Barnum Creek Nature Reserve.
The special monitor will help participants detect bats as they fly overhead. Dress for potential bugs and bring a flashlight. This event will be postponed if it is raining and participants will be notified that day.
Admission by donation. This event is funded by TD Friends of the Environment Fund.
