BEEPS Bat Counts!
Every Friday in July and August, the BEEPS peeps holds a bat count!
You'll get to learn about the cute critters that live in the Visitor Centre attic, hear their squeaks first hand, count them as they come out to forage, and provide us with valuable information for future research.
If you are wanting to attend a bat count, please see our Facebook page for up to date times (and extra days) of the bat counts.
Provincial bat counts are very important, because local biologists use this data for studies on the Okanagan bats.
The bats are absolutely fascinating and everyone is astounded by how many actually come out every night! We would love the help! Hope to see you there, and thank you for your support. #SavetheBats
