Evening Bat Walk Lake Chabot Marina (Castro Valley)
August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Susan will lead us out and back on a 3-mile round trip walk to watch and hear (she’ll bring her “bat detector”) the bats foraging over the lake. Lake Chabot hosts several species of bats, both residents and migrants. Come out and join the fun.
The trail is paved with some moderate up-and-down. Bring appropriate gear for a night walk, e.g., Flashlight for the return walk, Jacket, Something soft to sit on (we will be sitting on slanted ground for quite a while watching the bats, so you might wish to bring a blanket or a cushion.)
This walk is free, but you might consider making a donation to the Regional Parks Foundation: https://www.regionalparksfoundation.org/
Leader: Susan Ramos, EBRPD Naturalist
