These little flying mammals are great hunters of insects, eating more than 600 mosquitoes per hour! Learn about the eight species of bats native to Delaware, where they live, and how to include suitable shelters and landscape elements for bats in your yard. Then walk Mt. Cuba’s property to scout locations where bats are likely to roost and use a small acoustic monitor to listen for bats as well as see them.

This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center Saturday, July 22, 2023. (Rain Date: Saturday, July 29)
