Go for a bat walk

The Charlie Lake Conservation Society will host a unique opportunity this weekend for residents looking to catch a rare glimpse of bats on the hunt.

The society's Bat Walk will run Saturday, Aug. 1, at 9 p.m. at Beatton Provincial Park, and will be a family-friendly, half-hour walk through the forest.

"After a short presentation, volunteers armed with bat detectors will lead us through the woods and open areas where bats are silently hunting," the society said. "You may be lucky and catch a glimpse of bats in the night-time sky."

There are eight species of bats found in northeast B.C., and the society supports the Peace Bat Conservation Project.

The walk will meet at the picnic area parking lot. Those attending are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes and weather appropriate clothing, and to bring bug spray and a flashlight. The society will have night-vision binoculars. No dogs are allowed.

In case of rain, the event will be held Sunday, Aug. 2, at 9 p.m.
