Bat Activity Trends Community Science Night at Seahurst Park (7:45 PM-9:30 PM) August 14, 2024

Join the Environmental Science Center and the Woodland Park Zoo at Seahurst Beach Park in Burien on August 14th at 7:45 PM to learn about our local bats and the amazing adaptations that make them so important to our environment. Bats are a common across Washington state, including urban areas, but their nocturnal habits mean that people often don’t notice them. Taking the time to learn how to observe bats can change that!

We are empowering YOU to become a community scientist while learning more about local bat species and bat conservation issues. The BAT program involves going out to observe bats, right in your own neighborhood. The goal of the BAT program is to collect data on bat sightings across Washington. Getting out into nature and observing local wildlife is a great way to connect with your local

Seahurst Park can be found at: 2220 SW Seahurst Park Rd, Burien, WA 98166. There is a small parking lot located at the bottom of the hill, but plenty of spaces in the upper parking lot! We will meet at our building which is a 5-10 minute walk from the parking lots on the trail going north past the restrooms and playground.

Please fill out a registration form for each person in your group attending.
