In January, 2005 a team of biologists, regulators, and project proponents met to discuss possible bat habitat near the proposed Searsburg Wind Power Expansion projects. As a result of this meeting the initial habitat identification phase regarding bats near the project has been developed. Arrowwood Environmental was retained by Deerfield Wind LLC to conduct the bat habitat assessment for the proposed project. The focus of this study was on two species of bats: the federally endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis) and the Vermont state threatened small-footed bat (Myotis leibii). This report outlines the methodology and results of that study.
