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.
Join us every Wednesday evening (except for July 4) starting June 27th as the Lake George Land Conservancy, along with Stewart’s Shops, presents our FREE summer series Living Lands.
