Bat call and insect data collection in Red Canyon.

A blue UV light shines on a pool of ethanol in an rectangular container in the dark.

Detailed Description

This photo demonstrates the typical set up of the so-called 'bat-and-bug' citizen science data collection platform used on the SCREE - Powell 150 expedition. The UV light attracts bugs to the pool of ethanol, where they land and are preserved for identification, while the touchpad device has an untrasonic microphone to collect bat calls.
