The Wonderful World of Bats!

June 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Enter the wonderful and exotic world of bats with Jerry Schneider!

Learn just how vital bats are for maintaining a healthy environment. Through interactive dialogue and slides, children move beyond old stereotypes, to an understanding of the importance of bats for farmers, fruit growers, the rain forest, and us! See vivid photos of tropical Fruit Bats, the tiny Bumblebee Bat, the Vampire Bat, Townsend’s Big Eared Bat, and the Pallid Bat. Learn about echolocation calls, hibernation and migration. Did you know that a Little Brown Bat eats up to 1000 mosquitoes in one night?

Bring a white shirt to take home your own wearable bat craft! All this, and more, at the Wonderful World of Bats!
