The Conservancy Farm
Come out and take part in the annual counting of bats living in the Conservancy Farm barn. Over each of the past five years, we've counted around 100 Big Brown Bats flying out of the barn where they sleep during the day, emerging at dusk to fly off into LeFurge Woods Nature Preserve for their nightly insect hunt. The more eyes watching, the more accurate our count will be. As the sky darkens, we'll see fireflies by the hundreds light up the surrounding fields.
Everyone is welcome - bring friends and family. Kids are especially welcome. Please, no pets. We'll have some chairs available but you can bring your own lawn chairs. A blanket and pillows are a good way to watch, too. Be prepared for mosquitoes and evening temperature drop. Donations to support the Conservancy will be welcome.
