Weekly column in cooperation with the UAF research community.

Wow, do Alaskans love bats! Last week’s column on little brown bats inspired three times the comments I usually get.

“There really could be bats in your belfry this Halloween, or it turns out, they may be snuggled up in your wood pile.”

A few times each week, someone carries something dead or alive through the doors of the UA Museum of the North, hoping an expert can identify it.

Their bodies cooling with the October air, wood frogs are now snug in leafy blankets all over Alaska.

With a whisper, middle Alaska is undergoing its biggest change of the year.
