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.
