The Decorah Bat Roost Project

As a community we know very little about our local bat populations. Along with the research being done about the wind turbine's effects on these populations, research is being done to better understand these populations. Bat populations are difficult to study and observe. The Decorah Bat Roost Project hopes to gain insight into the location and roosting patterns of the Decorah bats.

 A bat roost is the location bats return to in the morning to sleep throughout the day. Different species and gender of bats have varying roosting patterns. The scientific community has a lot to learn about these nocturnal creatures. With the data collected through this project we have the capability to learn about population size and location, roosting bat habits and so much more.
