MAMMOTH CAVE, Ky., July 19, 2017 – Sunday, July 23, Dr. Tim Carter of Ball State University will present two public programs on bats:
- 4:00 p.m., “Be a Bat Scientist”, a Junior Ranger porch talk at the visitor center;
- 7:30 p.m., “Bats of Mammoth Cave National Park”, an evening program at the park amphitheater.
Dr. Carter will be in the park with 45 other bat biologists for the 2017 Southeastern Bat Diversity Network Bat Blitz. Biologists from all over the region will survey bats for three nights to gain a snapshot of the health of the park’s summer bat population.
The public is invited to Sunday’s events, free of charge.
