Bat Monitoring Walk

Prairie Creek Recreation Area, Jackson County

Saturday, October 1, 2022

As fall sets in many species of native Iowa wildlife start their fall migration or start going dormant. On Saturday October 1 at 6:45 pm join Naturalist Tony Vorwald at Prairie Creek Recreation Area, as we learn about the native bats of Iowa and monitor for the bat species present at Prairie Creek. We will meet at the Prairie Creek pavilion learn about the natural history of Iowa’s bats then hit the trails to monitor for the bat species present. We will go out into the evening and monitor for bats by using a special piece of technology that can identify bat species by their vocalization. This program is free. Dress for the weather. Please register 48 hours in advance. To register call Jackson County Conservation at (563) 652-3783 or email
