National Get Outdoors Day is June 10. The Allegheny National Forest's Marienville Ranger District has a fun-filled day planned!

Bats are so important to our ecosystem that we should appreciate them 365 days a year, they are vital to healthy ecosystems and human economies worldwide. Bats are dying off at an alarming rate. Bat populations have been decimated in recent years due to the white-nose syndrome. This has resulted in the recent listing of the northern long-eared bat (NLEB) as a threatened species and listing the Indiana bat as an endangered species.
What began as a discussion among frontliners about a desire to have an environmental education/interpretive program near the ANF’s Marienville Ranger District office, recently turned into a reality.
