Bats have been in the news lately. Wondering what’s up with bats in Massachusetts? Come learn about the different bats found in our state, where to look for them, and how landowners and homeowners can help conserve these fascinating mammals. You’ll also learn about the impact of a disease that is affecting our bats, called white-nose syndrome, what scientists are learning about this threat, and how you can help.

Katherine Ineson is a PhD student at the University of New Hampshire, studying the impact of white-nose syndrome, a deadly fungal disease, on little brown bats in New England. By monitoring summer colonies of little brown bats, she hopes to determine whether the population is beginning to recover from white-nose syndrome, as well as what we can do to help the species through conservation and management actions.
