Thanks to all who participated and made the MS Bat Working Group’s 19th Annual Mist Net Event a success! We had fourteen bat enthusiasts show up to help net on Holly Springs National Forest on July 27 and 28. The groups netted three sites each night and captured 26 bats representing five species. We had a great time catching up and discussing current bat work and issues throughout the state.
