Family Bat Night

Join us for an exciting evening learning about bats! There will be host of family fun bat activities from 6:00 until 7:00 pm. There are wonderful story and informational books about bats that you can see. Do you want to eat like a bat? There are recipes so you can do this at home. Compare your wingspan to a giant Golden-crowned flying fox! See the difference between a good and a bad bat house and more!
