Things To Do

Bat Basics For New Yorkers


Sep 12, 2018
07:30 PM until 09:00 PM


Bats are amazing creatures and often highly misunderstood. Join us as Bedford Audubon Board Member Dr. J. Alan Clark introduces us to the wonderful world of bats, with a special focus on the nine bat species found here in New York.

Dr. Clark will describe bats’ natural history, unique biology, ecology, and conservation status. Dr. Clark will explain recent threats to bats, including wind energy and white-nose syndrome, as well as discuss bats as potential vectors for disease. In addition, Dr. Clark will present some of his own exciting research on NYC bats and the bats of Trinidad and Tobago. Finally, we’ll learn about what to do should you encounter a bat – whether outside or inside your home – and what you can do to help our local bats.

Please join us for refreshments at 7:00pm, and the lecture begins at 7:30 pm.

This is a free event made possible by the generosity of the members and donors of the Bedford Audubon Society.
