7pm – 8pm  Appreciating Bats
Interactive presentation by Paula Rodriguez de la Vega, Provincial coordinator, BC Community Bat Program.  Why are bats so amazing?  They fly like birds, but they are so much more mysterious. Do they have hollow bones?  Can they sing?  Do they see like owls? Can they hawk like flycatchers? Come learn more about these unique mammals of the night and how you can help them.
8:15pm – 9:30pm. Sunset Bat and Wildlife Walk 
Join Linda Brooymans, Mid-island coordinator, BC Community Bat Program.
Bats start to come out around sunset (8:28pm).  Join Linda and local Bat Ambassadors for a walk around St. Andrews Waterfront Park to listen for and watch for bats.  Historically, the lodge used to have a bat colony in the attic.  Currently, there are several bat boxes that may be occupied, where we can watch bats as they exit and learn how to do a bat count.  We’ll also be watching for nocturnal wildlife.  Come stay up late with us!  Morning birding is still possible after a cup of coffee.
