Bat Walk at Kah Tai

Tom Butts, Port Townsend wildlife biologist specializing in bat ecology, will lead an evening bat walk, beginning at 8:00 p.m. at Kah Tai Lagoon near the parking lot. He will focus on interesting facts about the bats in our area, then at dusk he'll use bat detectors that can pick up high frequency calls to identify bats on the wing near the lagoon. Children are welcome. Contact Tom Butts at 360-302-0740 or
