"Batty for Bats" Talk

"Batty for Bats" Talk

Bats are as unique as they are important. They're the only flying mammal, using echolocation to find their way through the darkness. We need bats like we need birds and bees - they act as both predators for pesky mosquito and pollinators for fruit trees, and are considered a keystone species in the food chain. Come learn about these fascinating creatures of the night this October with Naturalist Angela Gordon at this all-ages, family-friendly program at Wildlands Trust.

This is a free program, but space is limited. Please register in advance.
