Join Jessica Kempke, Biologist and University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Alumni, at the lower parking lot on Baird Creek Road, approximately ¼ mile west of the HWY 43 overpass.
Jessica will take time discussing bat species found in Wisconsin, bat ecology, current threats to bats, and common myths and misconceptions. Once the sun goes down, Jessica will lead you on a hike with a handheld Anabat Monitor allowing you to hear the echolocation of bats foraging overhead. Jessica will be walking along a paved walkway along the creek which is easily assessable. This hike is a family focused event so bring the whole family.
The Baird Creek Preservation Foundation (BCPF) hosts free guided hikes through the Baird Creek Greenway that are open to the public. All hikes are child-friendly and generally last about two hours. Please remember to dress appropriately and be prepared to encounter a few hills and unpaved trails. BCPF hikes are led by experts in the related area and are a great way to learn, have a little fun and enjoy the outdoors.
This is a free event, but would appreciate if you registered prior to the event so we have an approximate headcount.
