Lava Beds Bat and Cave Ecology



Instructors: Tony Kerwin, BLM and Steve Sheehy, certified lichenologist
Dates: Friday-Sunday, July 10-12, 2015
Location: Lava Beds National Monument
Tuition: $165
 
Explore the diverse habitats and fascinating mammals of Lava Beds National Monument. We値l observe bats in forest and cave environments, and study their natural history. Friday evening we値l hike at twilight and potentially see the outflight of Brazilian freetailed bats toward Tulelake. Twilight netting will allow us to momentarily capture bats for close-up inspection. We値l also listen to, and record bats with detectors and investigate cave habitats. Enjoy Saturday morning on your own exploring other caves and sights of Lava Beds National Monument. In the afternoon, we値l reconvene for a session on bat biology and conservation, then  again after dinner for a mist netting session in a forest location. Monument staff will provide a Sunday morning session on natural resources management, including the pika monitoring project, and we値l do a short lichens hike with lichenologist Steve Sheehy to learn about the diverse species living on Lava Beds rock and soil.
