Kate Ritzko is a Wildlife Technician who works with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation to research the bat populations in New York. Kate holds a B.S. in Zoology from the State University of Oswego, and has a passion for wildlife conservation. She takes part in winter surveys of hibernating bats, acoustic analysis of bat calls during the summer, and other research efforts to monitor and protect the bat populations of NYS.

Kate’s summer presentation will include a brief overview of bat species in NY, and a discussion on the devastating effects of the fungal disease known as White Nose Syndrome. We will explore the current population trends, and what research and management practices are going on now.

Living Lands is the Lake George Land Conservancy’s weekly presentation series that takes an exclusive and up-close look at the people, history and wildlife of the lands of Lake George and the Adirondacks, past and present. Presentations are virtual; links and more information at lglc.org/events-and-programs/living-lands.
