WILDLIFE WATCHING — Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge biologists will present a program and an lead evening walk on Wednesday (July 18) to highlight bats, the important critters of the night skies.

“Bats of the World and the Channeled Scablands” starts at 7:30 p.m. at the refuge headquarters south of Cheney.

The talk will be followed by a walk on which special sound detectors will be demonstrated and a few bats may be caught for identification and examination.

 A donation of $5 to the Friends of Turnbull is suggested.
