Bats of Woodhaven
Time & Location
About the Event
Aside from the odd inky flurry at twilight, you may not see or even hear this particular neighbour. Join us for this interpretive event to learn about—and connect with—bats. We’ll talk about bat ecology, behaviour and cultural representations, and listen to echolocation calls (with a little help from technology). Bring your stories of nocturnal animal encounters to share! Following this half-hour talk, participants will be invited to designated “sit-spots” for twenty minutes of mindful listening to Woodhaven’s nighttime neighbours. Who do you hear?
Families are welcome. Note that this event will involve being in the forest at night.
This event is facilitated by Andrea Routley, in collaboration with the Friends of Woodhaven Nature Conservancy Society and the Regional District of the Central Okanagan.
What to bring: flashlight, bug repellent, a blanket or other adequate clothing for twenty-minutes of sitting, a folding chair or something to sit on, shoes (ants can be bad!) and a smart phone is optionial.
