Bat Walks are a Bat Conservation International (BCI) program to introduce communities to the amazing and beneficial flying mammals that live in their area. BCI is an international, nongovernmental organization working to conserve the world’s bats and their habitats through conservation, research, and education efforts. The Biodiversity Institute is proud to be the only Certified Bat Walk Ambassador to offer this program in Wyoming.
During the Bat Walk, we’ll take a slow stroll through a local park and learn about the bat species present in the area. We will use an acoustic device to detect the species that are calling nearby, and we may even get to see a bat as they swoop by for a drink from nearby water sources.
Free Bat Walks
Join us and learn all about local bat species and go on a short stroll to listen for bat calls. You may even get the chance to see one as they fly overhead!
