SALT LAKE CITY — The Division of Wildlife Resources and Hogle Zoo will hold a bat lecture on July 26 at Hogle Zoo's EdZoocation Station, located just west of the zoo's main entrance.     

The event is free of charge and begins at 8 p.m.     

DWR sensitive species biologist Kim Hersey will give a presentation about Utah's bats, and Hogle Zoo will have some visual aids on hand as well.     

During the event, Hersey will have a mist-net set up at a nearby location. Hersey is hoping to capture a bat that she can show participants before she releases it. Participants can also get a close-up look at live South American fruit bats and African straw-colored fruit bats that live at the zoo.
