Summer Bat Night

A big brown bat hangs upside down at dusk.


Location: Carolina Trout Hatchery, Richmond


Bring the whole family together and join the RIDEM’s Division of Fish & Wildlife to participate in a bat colony count! Sit back, relax, and learn about RI’s unique bat species and the conservation work being done to help these commonly misunderstood mammals. Kids are invited to make a bat craft before the bats take to the night sky! All participants are welcome to bring their own lawn chairs and get comfortable as they count bats flying by - you could even win a bat house for your very own home!  This program is FREE, but registration is required and space is limited.
