Christine Avena, RMW and 100 Women for the Wild member and bat biologist, will lead us on a bat hike, Christine studies the White Nose Syndrome disease in bats and is a PhD candidate of CU Boulder. Christine will start the evening with a chat about bat ecology and behavior, followed by a short hike at dusk to watch the bats as they get active! The trailhead is located close to street parking – since it’s a school night, you may come and go as you please – the bats won’t start getting active until about 8:15, with full blown activity around 9 or even 10! Participants have the opportunity to go home with their own bat house for a small donation!
This event is FREE and open to the public in support of our 100 Women for the Wild initiative, reducing gender bias in STEM fields.
When: Wednesday, July 25, 7:00-9:30 pm
Where: Shanihan RidgeTrail, Boulder. Meet at the trailhead!
