The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Division of Fish & Wildlife is seeking volunteer bat spotters to help in locating and counting the state’s bat colonies for the annual Delaware Bat Count.

A training session for volunteers will be held 5:30-7:30 p.m. May 14 at the Aquatic Resources Education Center, 4876 Hay Point Landing Road, Smyrna.

Weather permitting, a visit to a bat maternity colony site will be held for a count demonstration from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

The statewide study documents population trends and bats that breed in Delaware. Once volunteers adopt a site, they are asked to count the bats at least twice during the summer.

Registration is requested at 735-8676 or alexandra.heinemann@state.de.us.
