The October Chatham Conservation Partnership (CCP) meeting will focus on Bats of Chatham County. The webinar will be on Thursday October 19 from 9:00-11:30 a.m..

Come learn about bats! Chatham County is home to many bat species, including the tricolored bat which is being proposed endangered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service. We’ll have the state’s bat experts come and talk about bat biology and behavior, conservation, and how bat populations are monitored in the county.
