A National Park Service Centennial Celebration Class


**This class is sold out. Please call us at 541-597-8530 to place your name on the waiting list.

Instructors: Tony Kerwin and Steve Sheehy
Dates: Friday-Sunday, July 8-10, 2016
Location: Lava Beds National Monument outside Tulelake, CA
Tuition: $165


Venture into the night-time world of Lava Beds National Monument and its vast system of caves. Meet bats from some of the 14 species resident during a Lava Beds summer. This class reveals the Monument’s diverse habitats and fascinating mammals, with two evenings of bat observation in forest and caves, a study of bat natural history, and a briefing on natural resources management of the caves. Sunday morning you’ll have an opportunity to learn more about the colorful lichen species that splatter the rocks of LABE in a hike guided by volunteer lichenologist Steve Sheehy. We’ll spend at least one night learning about bats and echolocation using sonar detection tools to identify species that fly over and into caves at night. We might even capture some with mist nets for an up-close encounter. Between evening field trips and Saturday’s session in the Research Center, you’ll have free time to explore Lava Beds on your own.
