Bog Tour and Bat Walk
Time: Oct 20, 2016 (05:00 PM)
Location: Davis Arboretum


A Bog Tour and Bat Walk will take place at the Davis Arboretum on Thursday, Oct. 20. The Bog Tour will begin at 5 p.m. and participants will learn about carnivorous plants as they tour the Davis Arboretum bog and dissect pitcher plants. Following the Bog Tour, the Bat Walk will begin at the Arboretum Pavilion at 6 p.m. with a short presentation on bats. After the presentation, participants will divide up into small groups and search for bats in the arboretum using a bat detector and night-vision scope. Both events are free and open to the public, and attendees are encouraged to bring a flashlight. The events are hosted by the Mu Psi chapter of Tri-Beta, the Davis Arboretum and the Department of Biological Sciences.
