Habichat - Fall 2022

Welcome back to HabiChat!

With winter on the way, we turn to topics that inspire us in this spooky season of decreasing daylight. In this issue, I'm happy to share an introduction to glow-in-the-dark living creatures, a phenomenon that has always been one of my favorite marvels of the natural world. DNR's resident bat expert, Dana Limpert, collaborates on a native animal feature about our favorite flying mammals. Plus, Outreach and Education Assistant Edwin Guevara describes some entertaining and educational outdoor activities for these dark evenings and we suggest some Natural Areas to visit in this perfect season for hiking.

Happy fall!
