Bats of California’s Central Coast
Bats of California’s Central Coast will introduce participants to the 16 bat species that occur in our region. Topics covered will include bat biology, natural history, and ecology. Special attention will be placed on bat echolocation - how bats navigate and find food but also how scientists use this capability to study them. The biological and economic importance of bats throughout the world will be highlighted. The course will be tailored to lead participants into becoming citizen scientists to study, promote and educate about bats.
