Gadsden Commissions Bat Study

Gadsden is ready to build a new riverfront park in East Gadsden, but before they can begin they have to satisfy the environments and so they hired a consulting firm to do a survey of the 9 acres to see whether it may be a habitat for the endangered Indiana bat. They will check for the kinds of trees the bats like to hang out in. Fish and Wildlife says the site may be a bat habitat in summer, but developing the park shouldn’t be hampered because it would not jeopardize the species.
