Danielle Dagenais, MSc, PAg, from the South Coast Bat Conservation Society. (Rescheduled from April)
The importance of bats is often overlooked. These creatures are very important wildlife and face many threats, including habitat loss. Danielle Dagenais with the Community Bat Programs of BC will give a presentation on bats, the relationship between vegetation and bats, and bat boxes. Come learn about bats in your neighborhood and how you can help them.
