Discover Nature Families: Mist Netting Bats at Emmenegger Nature Park at Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center
Bring the family and discover one of Missouri’s most helpful mammals, the bat! Explore the world of bats as we capture them in mist nets while they travel along the Meramec River corridor to feed and migrate to their summer habitat. We will also be checking bats for signs of the white-nose syndrome. There are picnic tables or you may bring a camp or lawn chair for comfort. Insect repellant is strongly suggested. Participants must wear long pants, closed-toed shoes and bring a flashlight. Reservations are required. 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. All ages. Free. Powder Valley Conservation Nature Area.
