Bat Night at Oracle State Park

Oracle State Park

September 8, 2018   6:00 p.m.

Bat Night begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Kannally Ranch House with Dr. Joel Diamond who will present a 30-minute Powerpoint introduction to the bats of Arizona. The talk will be followed by a netting event excursion. The remote netting site will require an easy one-mile roundtrip trail hike.

Participants should be prepared for walking on a non-level park trail in the dark with the help of flashlights and a 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. Attendance is free with park admission. Bring your own flashlight if you have one!
