Bat Workshops

Some bat species that do not find suitable natural roosts turn to man-made structures, like bat houses A midsize bat colony needs a mid-sized bat structure. When the management goals are to house approximately 2,600 bats the Mini Bat Condo is the solution.

This structure was to fill the void between the 300 bat capacity "bat house" and the 10,000+ capacity "bat condo" originally designed by Cal Butchkoski & Jerry Hassinger of the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Over the years John Chenger of BCM modified the design and evolved into the more manageable Mini Condo.

With their nocturnal, flighted lifestyles, bats present a unique challenge for biologists tasked with inventory and monitoring efforts for these cryptic mammals. The Bat Survey Techniques courses provide intensive, hands-on experience with all manner of bat survey methods, including extensive work with the rapidly evolving science of collecting and analyzing ultrasonic echolocation recordings. These workshops are scheduled during times when bats can be collected physically, acoustically, and visually while conducting evening field trips. Outings at each venue provide hands-on experience in deploying gear and collecting data to process during daytime classroom demonstrations, with special emphasis on identifying local bat species. Night-time activities at nearby field sites demonstrate tools and techniques for both short term and long-term active and passive monitoring of bats.
