Rescheduled: Batty about Bats at Echo Bluff State Park Oct. 13

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, OCT. 1, 2018 – Echo Bluff State Park invites the public to its second annual Batty about Bats event. It will take place at the park’s amphitheater Saturday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m. Fly in for this free event designed to educate people about these fascinating and important flying mammals.

This is not your average park program. Participants will rotate through different stations including looking through an inferred camera, echolocation monitoring and a demonstration of how scientists safely capture bats with a mist net and work with the live specimens at a processing table.

Don’t forget to wear good shoes for walking and bring a light. All events are free.

Echo Bluff State Park is located on Highway 19 approximately 25 miles south of Salem and approximately 14 miles north of Eminence. For more information about the event, call Connie at 573-751-1224 or email
