• A question about the lights

    Question

    More of a design q, but here it goes! Why do the shelters that keep lights on into the night not use red lights to help bats and other night active creatures like migrating birds? Seems like an easy switch over! (Photo is of new shelter at Frohring Meadows shelter with lights on after 8 p.m., taken with a cell phone.)

    Just curious!

    Naturalist's Response

    This according to our Planning Department: The lights at Frohring Meadows are full cut-off lights and under a roof. Their purpose is to allow rangers to see if people are up around the shelters after hours or in the morning (more for safety and security). Thank you for asking!
