Come nose to nose with a fruit bat at the Horicon Marsh Visitor & Education Center! Did you know that bats account for 20% of earth’s mammal diversity?! Worldwide, these superheroes of the night sky are responsible for worldwide pest control, seed dispersal, and pollination among other benefits. Locally, Horicon Marsh provides a summer foraging feast for bats and sits on the doorstep of the state’s largest bat hibernaculum, Neda Mine. While white-nose syndrome (WNS) has decimated Wisconsin’s bat population there are still actions you can take to help bats and to help DNR scientists learn about WNS survivors. Jennifer Redell, WDNR bat biologist, will teach about the importance of these amazing animals and will be accompanied by live bat ambassadors, including a fruit bat native to Africa!
The Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center is located on Hwy. 28 between the cities of Horicon and Mayville. For more information please call Liz Herzmann at 920-387-7893 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
