Description Of This Tour

Bat biologist Tanya Luszcz takes you on a fun and interesting evening of batting at Sun-Oka Beach Provincial Park 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, the big threats facing their survival, and what we can do to help them. Then, using a combination of simple and high-tech gear, you will become bat scientists and watch and listen to bats as they exit their maternity roosts for a night of foraging. You will get to watch and hear these Yuma bats as they catch insects over the water.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
