Event details

As evening twilight descends upon the woodland, discover the diversity of bat species in Goodenow Grove Nature Preserve. One would never know that they were there! Bat sounds, undetected by human hearing, will be revealed with the help of bat-vocalization-detecting equipment. A short introduction will precede a quiet hike through Goodenow Grove.
