Bats are an important and often overlooked part of Minnesota's ecosystems. Research scientist Morgan Swinger invites you to come and learn about the habits and diets of the bat species found in Minnesota, along with the current research and studies being conducted to protect their populations. At dusk we will head out for a short hike to explore and discover foraging bats (weather permitting) There will be plenty of mosquitoes joining us so dress appropriately.
