Darke County Parks to Host Bats of Ohio Program

Bat populations have seen dramatic declines over the past several years. Due to the impact White Nose Syndrome has had, some species have seen up to 98% winter hibernacula loss. Darke County Parks is participating in the efforts to save these important ions of our ecosystem by participating in bat acoustic surveys and monitoring. We also have the most modern technology for detecting bat echolocation frequencies.
Join us for an evening discovering the importance and status of the Bats of Ohio and our role in monitoring local populations.

The Bats of Ohio program will begin at Shawnee Prairie Preserve at 8pm. Please pre-register by calling the Nature Center at 548-0165.
