Colorado’s Bats: Values They Provide and Challenges They Present

  • This event has passed.

Come learn about Colorado's bats and the amazing traits these little mammals pack into their fascinating lives

Join Wildlife Conservation Biologist, Dan Neubaum for his annual presentation on the interesting life of bats

We’ll discuss the benefits that these species play in the ecosystem, address some of the challenges that they present when the spaces we share overlap, and answer questions that you’ve always had an itch to answer about the only mammal who truly flies.

Dan Neubaum  received a B.S. in Wildlife Biology at Colorado State University, followed by several years of working on field studies throughout the western United States and Australia with bats, toads, beaver, and Tasmanian devils. He returned to earn a M.S. at CSU where his graduate work focused on the roost ecology of big brown bats using summer maternity roosts in anthropogenic structures and winter hibernacula in rock crevices. He spent eight years as a Research Associate working on bats, beaver, and greater sagegrouse with the U. S. Geological Survey’s Fort Collins Science Center.

In 2008, He moved to Grand Junction, CO where he has worked with Colorado Parks and Wildlife as a Wildlife Conservation Biologist, with a focus on bats, sage-grouse, river otters and many other species of conservation concern. Dan has worked with bats for 25 years covering a number of aspects including roosting ecology, disease transmission, species inventory and monitoring, education, and conservation. He currently serves as the Chair of the Colorado Bat Working Group, assisted with the creation of the Colorado Bat Matrix, and served as an editor and author of the second edition of the Colorado Bat Conservation Plan. He also serves as an At-Large Representative on the Western Bat Working Group Board.

Monument on Tap, a new series that will take the learning out of the park while supporting our local community. Monthly education series to be held on Thursdays at local breweries around town. Our 1st group of lectures will be held outdoors at Foam and Folly in downtown Grand Junction.

Please RSVP – Arrive at 5pm to grab a beverage, lecture starts at 5:30pm
