Description Of This Tour

6 pm – 7 pm Kids Crafts

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 also take the opportunity to do some “guerrilla gardening” with Darlene Hartford and Rachel Truant of the Bat Education and Ecological Protection Society (BEEPS). 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.

    My children learned something while getting exercise outdoors. I thought it was interesting and we enjoyed the evening activities. I would recommend this tour.
