Upcoming Events


Bat Program by Dr. Allen Kurta

September 29, Saturday, 3:00 pm Hibernation, Bats, and White-nose Syndrome. The program will explain what hibernation is, why bats do it, and where in Michigan hibernating bats are found. Dr. Kurta will discuss the overwintering behavior of the nine species of bats in the state and concentrate on the species that spend the winter underground, in mines and caves. The presentation will conclude with an introduction to white-nose syndrome, a fungal disease that has killed millions of hibernating bats in eastern North America since 2006 and has led to an 83% decline in overwintering populations in Michigan since 2014. Member/$4.00; nonmember/$8.00. NO reservations necessary.
