Over the last decade, the bat populations in Vermont have significantly declined due to the white-nose syndrome Come support our flying furry friends! Learn about Vermont’s nine species of bats, what habitat is important to the various species, and how you can manage your woodlands and property for enhancing bat habitat and populations. Alyssa Bennett,
Small Mammals Biologist and Bat specialist for the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, will discuss foraging and roosting features utilized by bats and forest management practices that can be incorporated to improve these features. We will be going outside for a short hike, to discuss how our backyards, landscapes and forests can be managed to best suit bat habitat.
