FW: Announcement - Desert Bat Class
- I took this weekend seminar a couple of years ago, and really enjoyed it,
learned a lot about our local bats, got to meet a lot of folks working in
the field. The instructors were great! I would go this year if I didn't have
too many other things going on this spring.

Bats are important components of the desert ecosystem yet because of their
nocturnal nature they are usually difficult to observe. This course will
introduce the participants to the world of bats and to some of the
techniques used by scientists to study these amazing mammals. Nightly field
work will allow participants to use ultrasonic bat detectors and night
vision equipment and to observe the mist-netting of wild bats (unless it's
windy). Diurnal lectures and videos will supplement the field experiences.
