Bat Watch at the Beach -- Bass River State Forest
Time & Place
Bass River State Forest/Lake Absegami Beach Breezeway
MacKenzie Hall, Biologist with the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ, will introduce us to the amazing bats that live in New Jersey and teach us what we can do to help them. Come learn about these fascinating, insect-eating, acrobatic mammals as day turns into night. We'll use an acoustic detector to unlock the "secret" ultrasonic language of bats as they pass overhead.
Insect repellent, a flashlight and something to sit on is recommended. The venue is ADA accessible.
The program is free but donations to the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ are welcome.
