Bat Watch

The fun starts at dusk if you're an insectivorous bat, or if you're someone who likes to watch bats! During this family program, we'll find bats using our super-duper "Bat Detector." This device picks up the bats' "clicks" used in echolocation. We'll also play some bat games and learn about bat ecology. Advance registration is required. Call 630-444-3190 or email programs@kaneforest.com to register.
