Bats of Iowa & Bat House Night Hike

Briggs Woods Park and Golf Course, Hamilton County

Saturday, September 1, 2018

Come and join our County Naturalist for a presentation on the Bats of Iowa and White Nose Syndrome.

  • Where did this disease come from and why is it such a threat to our native bats?
  • Why are bats so important to humans?
  • Come and find out the answer to these questions at Shelter 1 in the park.
  • Free Bat house plans will be available for people to take.
  • We will have the presentation in Shelter 1 and then hike to Shelter 2 to observe bats coming and going from the bat houses near Shelter 2.
  • This program is for all ages of people who like bats or are just interested in bats.
  • If you have a Bat costume feel free to wear it.
