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.
