Forestry Students ‘Bat Cleanup’ in Newswatch 16 Report

Newswatch 16Spring cleaningA cooperative project between Penn College forest technology students and the Pennsylvania Game Commission was featured in Tuesday evening’s 5 p.m. Newswatch 16 broadcast. WNEP’s Jim Hamill joined Game Commission personnel and students in Donald R. Nibert’s wildlife management class at the Brady Township site of a “bat condo,” erected a decade ago as an alternate roosting site for little brown bats that had made their home in an area church. Students of Nibert, an assistant professor of forestry, periodically return to the 10-foot-high structure, extrapolating the home’s usage by measuring the ever-increasing amount of bat guano scooped from within.
