Things get a little batty in Marana during the late summer and early fall. For that reason, area residents are needed for a bat and hummingbird feeder monitoring study.
The study is used to determine the presence of lesser long-nosed bats in the area. It’s easy and interesting to volunteer on this citizen science project. Monitor your feeder two or three times per week until the bats leave, measuring the level of fluid in the feeder just before the sun goes down and again when you wake up. Then input your data on a website.
It’s easy to find more information and participate. The Town appreciates your assistance and so do the bats.
