Bats! March 12, 2014 Meeting at the Jackson County Bank

Bats are some of the most beneficial animals in the world, but many are struggling to survive. They are succumbing to a fungal disease known as white-nose syndrome, which is killing North American bats by the millions.
The situation will be discussed at the Friends of the Black River’s March 12 meeting. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the community room of the Jackson County Bank. Jennifer Redell, a conservation biologist in the Bureau of Natural Heritage conservation and a Cave and Mine Specialist for the Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) Wisconsin Bat Program, and Ben Johnston, a volunteer Citizen Scientist with the bat program, will be the program presenters.
