(Whitehall, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) is hosting a guided night hike to look for Bats of Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park.
Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park is host to 11 of Montana’s 15 species of Bats. These flying mammals help control mosquitos and moth populations. They have a unique adaptation that helps them successfully hunt at night, which does make them tough to spot.
This guided hike will give you a great opportunity to learn about the myths of bats and be able to successfully identify different species of bats. The hike will be less than half a mile and will start at the Main Visitor Center.
For more information call the park visitor center at (406) 287-3541.
