Bat Night with Kris Soffa & JoAnne Woods from Andorra Library

October 3, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Meet at the Wissahickon Environmental Center

Why do bats matter and how can we support the habitat they depend upon? Join us for some batty fun with this celebration of the role of bats in nature! This is your chance to learn more about these fascinating nocturnal creatures.  Listen to their chirping on our Bat Seeker-Echolocation device and participate in a bat count. Be prepared to walk quietly on woodland trails in the dark and bring a flashlight. Experience with bat monitoring is not required. Children 12+ with responsible adult welcome. No pets please.

Level: Moderate

Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired. Unless otherwise noted, children over six are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or icy conditions. For more information contact Maeve Pollack at Visit for updates.
