BATS!  presented by USDA Forest Service Peg Robertsen
BATS! presented by USDA Forest Service Peg Robertsen

Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center | Grand Marais MN


We have lost much of our population to White-nose Syndrome (WNS) it is a disease that is killing millions of bats in eastern North America. Infected bats often have white fungus growing around their muzzle —the “white nose” that gives the disease its name— as well as on their wings, tail and ears. As of spring 2017, bats in 30 states and 5 provinces have the disease

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources have stated bats, like snakes, are poorly understood. As a result, these tiny winged mammals are feared by many.

General description: Bat species found in Minnesota are very small, weighing from two-tenths of an ounce to slightly over one ounce.

Fun facts: Bats locate insects and dodge obstacles by echo location. As they fly, they constantly emit supersonic cries. Their ears pick up echoes bouncing off objects. These echoes either guide bats toward prey or away from obstacles. Discovery of this unique principle led to development of sonar and radar by which boats and planes navigate, and fishermen locate schools of fish.

All presentations are family friendly and free to the public.
Donations are always appreciated.
