Come net bats with the Arizona Game and Fish Department

PHOENIX – The Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering a chance to accompany biologists on an evening of bat netting along the Verde River, north of Scottsdale, on Friday, July 8, 7-10 p.m.

Arizona is home to 28 species of bats, many of which live and forage right in our own back yards. This event is your chance to see these fascinating and often misunderstood creatures in person.

"We’ve had good luck netting bats along the Verde," said Randy Babb, watchable wildlife program manager for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. "We typically capture four to five species and sometimes get something unusual, which can be really exciting. Captured bats will be identified, examined, and released unharmed."

,In addition to bats, Babb said other species that might be encountered include rattlesnakes and other reptiles, along with owls and various rodents.

"It’s a really nice way to spend a warm summer evening," said Babb.
