Bat Night

Oracle State Park

July 29, 2017   7:30 p.m.

Bat Night begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Kannally Ranch House for a 30-minute PowerPoint introduction to the bats of Arizona. The talk will be followed by an optional netting event excursion. The remote netting site will require an easy one-mile roundtrip trail hike.

However, participants should be prepared for walking on non-level park trail, in the dark with the help of flashlights and ranger guide. Research Ecologist and Regional Manager for Arizona Game and Fish, Joel Diamond, Ph.D., is back by popular demand for this evening program to learn more about bats and get up close and personal to some of the flying mammal species living in our neighborhood. Please call for a reservation, (520) 896-2425; free with park admission. Bring your own flashlight if you have one!
