    Name: Acoustic Bat Monitoring Training
    Date: May 9, 2019
    Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    Participants will learn about bat ecology, and how to contribute to citizen science efforts through acoustic monitoring.
    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 especially good for potential volunteers interested in assisting in bat monitoring efforts.
