Bats are the only flying mammals and among the most misunderstood animals. Join Rene Laubach to learn about bats found in our area. The program will begin indoors for an overview of the ecology and diversity of bats, and will conclude outdoors with a search for bats, weather permitting. A bat detector will be used to eavesdrop on the bats as they hunt for food.
