Thanks to All of Our 2023 Mist Net Event Participants!.

We had a fun few days mist netting around Bienville National Forest in Central Mississippi. Twenty participants covered 3 sites on 7/26 and four on 7/27, which yielded 73 bats representing 4 species. This is the second highest total captures we’ve had for one of these events and the highest average capture per site (average of 10.4 bats per site, range 4-19).
