Bats, Hibernation, and White-Nose Syndrome
In this informative program, you will learn about hibernation, why bats do it, and where in the state hibernating bats are found. Dr. Allen Kurta, an expert in bat behavior, will discuss how Michigan’s nine species of bats spend their winters, especially those that hibernate underground in mines and caves. The presentation will conclude with an introduction to white-nose syndrome, a fungal disease that has decimated our bat population. Cost: $2/person or $5/family.
