Bat Night with Audubon Society of Portland

On August 27th we headed to the Audubon Society of Portland for their Bat Night, in celebration of “International Bat Night, a global event highlighting these fascinating animals. Cris Hein, from Bat Conservation International, will present slides of dozens of bats from Oregon and across the world, and discuss topics such as: where bats live, what they eat, and why they are important. Following the presentation, Cris will lead an outdoor “bat walk” into Audubon’s Pittock Sanctuary and use an acoustic detector to listen for Oregon bats.” Being out at night is something Patrick is not used to, so this was a lot of fun!
