Bats in New York State are suffering from white-nose syndrome, it has caused the precipitous decline of many species of bats. This area of New York State is where this syndrome was first discovered. Now the disease is in over half of US states and is still spreading. Five Rivers’ Jones barn is home to a colony of one of the bat species hardest hit by the syndrome.  DEC staff and volunteers have been counting bats at the Jones barn since before WNS was first discovered in this country.

If you are interested in helping Five River’s count bats or if you would just like to learn more about these fascinating mammals, email us at 5rivers@dec.ny.gov to sign up for this on line training.

Space is limited.
