Adventurers for Audible Bats


Join Adventurers for Audible Bats, a project of the OSU HERS lab, to help gather community science data about native bats in Central Oregon. Volunteers will collect data on two of Oregon’s rarest and most striking bats, the spotted bat and pallid bat, to help conserve and care for the species.

Volunteers attend an in-person or online training, and then use an interactive map to choose survey sites from across Oregon--including Land Trust protected lands. Train and practice your listening skills while you learn about all 15 of the bat species that live in Oregon. Record findings at sunset with a phone app. Training details below.


Adventurers for Audible Bats Training:
When: June 11, 2022, 7:30pm.
Where: Smith Rock State Park
What: Volunteers will learn about the Audible Bats project, how to safely and effectively listen for bats, how to sign up for surveys, and how to submit data. After that, we will listen for spotted bats, which frequent the park. Attendees will need a headlamp, sturdy shoes, and the CitSci app downloaded on their phone.
