On March 20,  at the Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury, Scott Darling, wildlife biologist with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department and the point person for Vermont’s bats gave a presentation at the Ilsley Public Library entitled Bats on the Brink. The advent of white nose syndrome has thrown the bat landscape topsy-turvy. Scott shared his experiences in working with the many scientists now engaged in this struggle to save bats and offered his insights into prospects for their recovery. If you missed this presentation you can view it online thanks to the production facilities of Middlebury Community Television. Many of our past presentations can also be viewed online by following this link.

Our next Cabin Fever Lecture, The Bobolink Project, presented by Dr. Allan Strong, associate dean of the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources of the University of Vermont takes place March 13th at 7:00 PM at the Ilsley Library.
