At this time of year we will have opportunity to witness the spectacular fall swarming behavior of thousands of gray myotis outside of a restored hibernacula. Arrive a day early on Saturday to participate in Mammoth Cave's annual Bat Night event for an extra field opportunity to handle bats.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"layoutArea\"\u003eJust a decade ago, bats were largely ignored in conservation planning, simply because so few people, including wildlife managers, understood their needs and values. Today, leaders from around the world are gaining hands-on experience at the wide range of BCM \u0026amp; BatSS training courses and workshops. These events employ the most current inventory and monitoring techniques and serve as a valuable addition to the long-term monitoring efforts for bats in an area. The course curriculum, which combines a combination of classroom lecture\/discussions, demonstrations, and night-time field work, is designed to provide a general introduction to teaching participants a wide range of research and conservation skills from habitat assessment and management for bats to species identification, netting and trapping techniques, night vision observation, cave and mine assessment and protection, and win\/win solutions for wildlife management. Each summer during these (and other North American) training workshops, BatSS and BCM trains over 100 wildlife biologists, land-managers, students, and educators, in the field techniques for studying bats, the latest conservation and education approaches, current federal and state survey protocols, and invaluable conflict-resolution skills for effecting positive conservation outcomes. The Kentucky venue at Mammoth Cave is especially valuable for instruction because of the diversity of local habitats providing roosts and\/or watering resources for numerous species of bats in the area. Bats form a significant, yet often over-looked component of the mammalian fauna found in American habitats. Managing for bats in these areas presents unique challenges, especially since not all bats will use these areas in similar manners. The KY training workshop will focus on the differing needs of up to 10 bat species known from the area and will highlight diverse research and inventory techniques appropriate for each species of bat to obtain the most robust and accurate survey results. This is invaluable information to help shed light on the behavior, habitat needs, and occurrence of these cryptic animals. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"layoutArea\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cem\u003eDates\u003c\/em\u003e\u003cem\u003e:\u003c\/em\u003e \u003c\/strong\u003eSunday 28 August thru Tuesday 30 August 2022. Training begins promptly at noon on Day 1 and will end at the conclusion of the night field trip (midnight) on Day 3.

At this time of year we will have opportunity to witness the spectacular fall swarming behavior of thousands of gray myotis outside of a restored hibernacula. Arrive a day early on Saturday to participate in Mammoth Cave's annual Bat Night event for an extra field opportunity to handle bats.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"layoutArea\"\u003eJust a decade ago, bats were largely ignored in conservation planning, simply because so few people, including wildlife managers, understood their needs and values. Today, leaders from around the world are gaining hands-on experience at the wide range of BCM \u0026amp; BatSS training courses and workshops. These events employ the most current inventory and monitoring techniques and serve as a valuable addition to the long-term monitoring efforts for bats in an area. The course curriculum, which combines a combination of classroom lecture\/discussions, demonstrations, and night-time field work, is designed to provide a general introduction to teaching participants a wide range of research and conservation skills from habitat assessment and management for bats to species identification, netting and trapping techniques, night vision observation, cave and mine assessment and protection, and win\/win solutions for wildlife management. Each summer during these (and other North American) training workshops, BatSS and BCM trains over 100 wildlife biologists, land-managers, students, and educators, in the field techniques for studying bats, the latest conservation and education approaches, current federal and state survey protocols, and invaluable conflict-resolution skills for effecting positive conservation outcomes. The Kentucky venue at Mammoth Cave is especially valuable for instruction because of the diversity of local habitats providing roosts and\/or watering resources for numerous species of bats in the area. Bats form a significant, yet often over-looked component of the mammalian fauna found in American habitats. Managing for bats in these areas presents unique challenges, especially since not all bats will use these areas in similar manners. The KY training workshop will focus on the differing needs of up to 10 bat species known from the area and will highlight diverse research and inventory techniques appropriate for each species of bat to obtain the most robust and accurate survey results. This is invaluable information to help shed light on the behavior, habitat needs, and occurrence of these cryptic animals. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"layoutArea\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cem\u003eDates\u003c\/em\u003e\u003cem\u003e:\u003c\/em\u003e \u003c\/strong\u003eSunday 28 August thru Tuesday 30 August 2022. Training begins promptly at noon on Day 1 and will end at the conclusion of the night field trip (midnight) on Day 3.
