ID : 8326   
« back to classes page

Enjoy an introduction to the world of bats, first with “old-school” slides, then out into their natural habitat. This two-part class will provide an opportunity to learn about these fascinating creatures, then venture out into their habitat in the dark of night for an evening walk in search of these nimble, nocturnal creatures.

After our review of bat flight, prey location and capture, and a spectrum of special adaptations of successful bat behavior and biology, we will visit a prime viewing area for local bats in Santa Cruz County. There will be time for a dinner break in between the on-campus portion, and the off-site portion of class.

No extensive or strenuous mobility is required, but this class involves walking on dirt trails at night. Please dress appropriately for the weather, wear shoes suitable for walking on gradual dirt trails, and bring at least one flashlight per participant.

This program is suitable for students ages 8 and above.

Students will be provided a printed map to the off-site location during the on-campus portion of class.
