Young District Landcare recently held a ‘Bat Night’ as part of their Microbats in the Young Shire Project. During the night participants took a walk to the Arboretum and creek with the Anabat detector and we were able to detect a number of different species.

This project has also led to improved habitat for microbats through the installation of 60 roosting boxes and the planting of over a thousand local native plants by landholders, residents, Council, and the Young Golf Club. The bat boxes were well made by Young Men’s Shed, who spent more than four weeks cutting and assembling 60 boxes made from plywood supplied by Young Building Supplies.
