Evening Bat Walks in Central Park at American Museum of Natural History
This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.
At dusk, bats leave the warm spaces under city roofs to feed on flying insects. Join Brad Klein, Danielle Gustafson, and other members of the New York City Bat Group for a walk through Central Park. Aided by a detector that amplifies the bats' otherwise inaudible high-frequency chirps, bat watchers monitor and catalogue the species that call the city home. Meet at the Museum entrance on 77th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. Enrollment is limited. Please register no later than one week in advance.
Venue Description: A museum for the 21st century, with a rich and storied past and one of the greatest natural history museums in the world, with over 40 exhibition halls. Open daily from 10am to 5:45pm except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
