CLAYTON - The night life around Black Rock Mountain State Park near Clayton will keep bat researchers busy Sept. 4-7.<br />
It's all part of the Georgia Bat Working Group's first Bat Blitz.<br />
The event is focused on better understanding the area's bat communities. But there is an even bigger picture. <br />
Trina Morris, who leads bat research for Georgia DNR's (Department of Natural Resources) Nongame Conservation Section, said the timing syncs with other blitzes in the eastern U.S. as part of a Southeastern Bat Diversity Network effort to gather data after the summer survey season ends and before bats start migrating.<br />
As part of the Georgia blitz, the public is invited to learn about bat conservation and see how researchers survey bats during a Friday night program led by Morris. The presentation starts at 7 p.m. Sept. 5 in the park's amphitheater ($5 parking fee required).
