12 - Bat Monitoring Station

Gleason, Wisconsin 54435, United States

Created By: UW-Madison


Kemp is one of several sites in Wisconsin that hosts a bat monitoring station. Powered by the sun, special equipment records the echolocation signals emitted by bats flying in the area. Each month we upload the data to bat ecologists with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The data tell them the species of bats flying at Kemp (each species produces a different echolocation pattern) and how many. Over time, researchers can see if the overall population of bats at Kemp is changing and they can monitor migration patterns. Data collection began in 2007.
