Family bat count event to take place on Canada Day
June 24th, 2014
The second provincial bat count took place at Peachland Historic Primary School on June 17 under clear skies, 22 degree temperatures, and according to the data provided by Environment Canada, winds between 13 and 19 km per hour. The first bat emerged from the attic of the building at 9:28 p.m. with a total of 856 bats counted within the one-hour event.
What was first thought to be a liability has turned into a biological treasure in Peachland, where one of the largest known maternity colonies of Yuma bats in B.C. has been welcomed—instead of being destroyed.
