Our bats are back

If you're like me and are desperately looking for signs that our long-awaited spring is finally on the go, you might be interested to know that a day or two ago one of our resident bats showed up at its usual roost here at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre.

Since Alberta bats are dependent on insects for food, they can't hang around their usual summer territories all winter. Instead, they migrate to winter hibernating caves and only return in the spring.

If you're interested in seeing our "secret" bat roost or would like more information on bats and bat boxes, come see us at the Nature Centre or give us a call at 403-346-2010.
