Bat Roost Monitoring Project

May 29, 2017 through Jun 23, 2017 (All day)

The Division of Wildlife is seeking volunteers for a new project that will better the understanding of bat roosting habits in Ohio. Two times during the summer, volunteers around the state will count bats emerging from roosts, whether it’s a bat house, tree, barn or other building. The surveys begin 30 minutes before sunset and last until it gets too dark to see the bats.

The first survey will be conducted between May 29th and June 23rd, 2017.

The second survey will run between July 10th and July 31st, 2017.
