2013 Annual Bat Festival

South Dakota Bat Working Group

South Dakota Bat Working Group

Custer State Park, SD -( The South Dakota Bat Working Group (SDBWG) will present the 9th Annual South Dakota Bat Festival on Saturday, Aug. 16, at 6 p.m. MDT in Custer State Park’s Tatanka Theater.

Biologists will answer questions about bats and at 7 p.m. there will be a lecture-presentation. The festival also includes educational bat displays, crafts for kids and refreshments. After the presentation, “bat-detectors” will be used to listen to bats flying overhead in Game Lodge Campground.

Some of the bats roosting in the Tatanka Theatre often make an appearance by flying around inside the theatre,” said festival organizer Joel Tigner. “This gives festival-goers a chance to hear real-time echolocation calls as recorded on ultrasonic ‘bat’ detectors.”

About The South Dakota Bat Working Group (SDBWG)

The purpose of the SDBWG is to work to protect bats and bat habitat through action, education and cooperation with federal, state, tribal and private landowners. The group aims to raise awareness about the role bats play in maintaining healthy ecosystems, and to work with public land managers and private landowners and provide alternatives that will reduce possible adverse effects to bats or bat habitat. The SDBWG is a member of the Western States Bat Working Group. For more information on the festival and the South Dakota Bat Working Group, please contact Joel Tigner at 605-390-2061.
