Please join NJ Audubon, NJ Natural Lands Trust, Delaware Riverkeeper Network and other organizations in a night of bat watching in a soon-to-be State Park not yet accessible by the public!

Join the organizations for this special evening program and learn all about bats and their many important roles in nature. With the oil tanks gone, the group has permission to walk the road and explore the field habitats of Petty’s Island. It is known bats use the island, but the organizations have never been out at night to explore. The group will bust some common myths about these fascinating but misunderstood animals and discuss some of the ways we can help to protect them. As the sun goes down, the group will head out and try to pick up their echolocation calls with our bat detector. There is nothing quite like a nature walk at night, so come get batty on Petty’s Island!

Children must be 12 and older to participate. Registration is REQUIRED for this trip. Details are given upon registration.

Check back 4-6 weeks before the event for registration details, or contact Kelly Wenzel at kelly.wenzel@njaudubon.org to be added to the email list.
