Go Batty! With Jerry Schneider

Tuesday, October 26th at 4 pm

nature programs for the past ten years throughout the Northeast, the Midwest, and along the Atlantic Seaboard. This program introduces audiences to local and tropical bats. Via slides and taped bat calls, the audience moves beyond old stereotypes to understand the vital role of bats, which help control pesky insects, pollinate night blooming flowers, and are valuable dispersers of seeds. Audiences learn about bats in our attics, building bat houses, vampire bats, migration and hibernation. The program concludes with the children creating their own bat tee shirt to bring home.
