Webinar on how to manage bats in the school district

When:  Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Time:  2:00 PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Bats are one of nature’s best insect predators, often eating thousands of mosquitoes and other insect pests in just one night. However, their helpful ways are quickly forgotten when they find their way into school buildings.

What are the health issues associated with bats, the legal considerations surrounding their removal, and proven tactics to prevent and manage them?

Join bat specialists from Cornell University and Bat Conservation International as they discuss the positive contributions bats make to the environment as well as the risks they present to students, faculty, and staff at schools. Learn how to best handle bat/human conflicts, relocate invading bats, properly clean up bat droppings, and prevent future incursions into school buildings.

Two school facility managers will also share the challenges bats have presented in their districts and the steps they took to maintain a healthy learning environment for their students.

Our featured presenters are:

* John Hermanson, Ph.D., Professor, Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine

* Dianne Odegard, Education & Public Outreach Manager, Bat Conservation International

* Ricardo Zubiate, Assistant Director Facility Services, Salt Lake City (Utah) School District

* Jeremy Theriot, Energy Coordinator, Ascension Public School (Baton Rouge, LA)
