Nearly sixty people attended the 2015 Wildlife Speaker Series event, which was a bat talk by Matt Bell from the Montana Land Reliance. The event was held at the Kalsta Ranch near Glen on August 18, 2015. Pulled pork sandwiches were served with coleslaw, cookies, and a smorgasbord of potluck side dishes and desserts!  Matt taught us about the different species of bats in Montana and their behaviors and then we took a walk down to the river with bat detectors to listen for them. We spotted and heard several species of bats, and it seemed like everyone involved had a great time! We look forward to hearing from Matt again in 2016, this time about the Reptiles & Amphibians of Montana.
