The 2018 Bat Counts have begun!

Join the BEEPS peeps for bat counts every Friday before dusk!

See the Bat Counts page for more details.

June 1st - Count: 625 

This was low due to high winds and rain.

June 15th - Count: 1092

June 19th - Count: 861

This was low due to a short count time of 35 mins.

July 13- Count: 1285

Some of the babies started flying at this point, however, the count was still lower than expected due to wind.

August 3- Count: 1450

August 10- Count: 1265

A little smoky, may have affected the numbers.

August 17- Count: 698

Very smoky, affected the numbers. Bats may be beginning to leave the attic for the season. Back of the building wasn't counted.
