Bats and Urban Biodiversity

February 7, 2015, 9 am - 1 pm

Even in urban Los Angeles, students can experience a wide array of life and ecosystem.  Here at the museum, we’re listening for bats, counting birds and watching for lizards, to name a few.  In this workshop, learn about our latest bat discoveries and how certain species indicate the health of a habitat with Museum scientist Miguel Ordeñana. Then, model NGSS-related identification activities to take back to the classroom.
