Bat Activity Trends

A Woodland Park Zoo Community Science Program




Bat Activity Trends (BAT)

The Bat Activity Trends (BAT) program involves going out to observe bats, right in your own neighborhood. You can participate from a yard, patio, balcony or even a window with a clear view of the sky!

About the program
