Description Of This Tour
Bat biologist Tanya Luszcz takes you on a fun and interesting evening of batting Vaseux Lake and introduces you to these amazing flying mammals. Your night begins with a slide show about the diversity of bats in the Okanagan and beyond. Then, using special high-tech gear, you will become bat scientists and attempt to listen and look for foraging bats along the waterside. Later in the evening, there might be a possibility to view a captured live bat.
