Bat Program at Boch Hollow State Nature Preserve on August 7

Posted on 7/29/2015 by State Nature Preserves

Bats evoke more emotions than quite possibly any other mammal species in Ohio. Join the Ohio Department of Natural Resources at Boch Hollow State Nature Preserve on Friday, August 7 at 8 p.m. to learn all about Ohio’s silent heroes - bats.

Boch Hollow SNP

We will learn how this imperiled group of animals fights tirelessly for their survival providing countless benefits to mankind. At dusk we will venture out into the yard to watch and listen to bats as they ply the skies ridding us of night flying pests. Kids will have the opportunity to handle model bats, take scientific measurements, and use a dichotomous key to identify bat species.
