The herd can be very curious if you’re sitting down enjoying the view! Just a reminder to not feed them..even if they are begging! 😊 some are older and are on special diets and won’t be able to process other types of food.

Just hanging around with bats! 🦇
Our resource staff has been out studying bats in a project coordinated through the One Tam collaborative in conjunction with staff from the U.S. Geological Survey. Staff was properly trained to capture bats without any harm, examine them, attach a radio tag, and then set them free. After they were tagged, staff tracked them to figure out roosting habits. #WildlifeWednesday
Gusty winds didn’t stop this group of volunteers! These dedicated volunteers helped lay sheet mulch at Hal Brown Park last weekend. Thank you for your hard work!
