The Alabama Bat Working Group will be conducting it’s Bat Blitz from 2:00 p.m. Monday, October 7, 2013 until the morning of Friday, October 11, 2013. The Nature Conservancy’s Headquarters (House) at 1481 Highway 72 in Gurley, Alabama will serve as the location to coordinate bat trapping and the place where the Fall meeting of the group will be held.
The bat blitz is an organized effort to conduct many surveys for bats in a relatively short period of time in a particular area to determine what species are present and their relative abundance. Trapping will be held each night in the Jackson County and east Madison County areas.
All are welcome and the event is free. This is an opportunity to learn how bats are studied in the wild just before the Halloween Season. You may attend any or all of the four nights. Meet at the Headquarters at 2:00 p.m. Monday or 10:00 a.m. any of the other days through Thursday. The Fall meeting will be held on Wednesday beginning at 10:00 a.m.
