Ladd Marsh Bat Night

FOLM presents Bats with Burr. Join Burr Betts and the Friends of Ladd Marsh to learn more about these winged mammals of the night Saturday, August 20 at 8:30 PM. We will gather at a pond on Ladd Marsh across Peach Road from the Fishing Pond; it is about 1 mile north of Highway 203 (the Union Hwy) on Peach Road. We will attempt to catch bats for participants to observe (no handling); we will listen for bat calls with a bat detector and Burr will talk about bats and their life history. Participants please wear clothing appropriate for the weather (remember it can cool significantly after dark) and bring a headlamp and/or flashlight, insect repellant and a chair of you wish to sit while we wait for bats. If the weather is inclement (rainy and/or windy), we will move to Ladd Marsh HQ for an indoor presentation on bats.
