Description Of This Tour
6 pm – 7 pm Kids Crafts, Peachland Historic School, 5684 Beach Avenue
7 pm Bat House Interpretive Trail Walk
Meet at Beach Avenue and Todd Road under the Bat House interpretive sign for a guided tour for all ages and abilities. Walk along a gentle forest trail with bat biologist Tanya Luszcz and learn about Okanagan bats, their habitat, food and characteristics along with many interactive stories. The group will take the opportunity to do some “guerrilla gardening.” We will be making and distributing “seed bombs” to distribute along a hillside on the bat house trail where wildflower meadows were destroyed during the installation of water lines. The group will then move to Peachland Historic School to view live footage of five cameras strategically placed in the attic. Watch and count as the Yuma’s and Little Brown Bats wake up and exit the building for nightly foraging.
