September 25th: "Bats: What You Didn't Learn Watching Batman!" Marne Titchenell, Wildlife Program Specialist, The Ohio State University Extension.
Bats are fascinating and very beneficial critters to have around, despite their spooky reputation. We will dispel the myths surrounding bats, discuss how they help us, and how we can help them as they face a very deadly disease called white-nose syndrome.
Marne Titchenell received her B.S. and M.S. in wildlife management and forestry from The Ohio State University. She has gained experience working as a biological and wildlife technician for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and USDA Forest Service. She has also worked as a naturalist for the Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks where she developed a passion for environmental education. In late 2007, Marne accepted her current position as the Wildlife Program Specialist, with the Ohio State University Extension within the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. She works to provide a variety of educational programs, workshops, conferences and publications centered on wildlife ecology and biology, habitat management for wildlife and managing nuisance wildlife species.
