Be brave and bask in the brilliance of bats! This fun, family program is going to be a bat-tastic time. Bust bat-myths, participate in bat-related activities, and watch for bats flying at dusk. Bring a blanket or chairs. The evening ends with a batty presentation and a celebration of the emerging bats. Long pants and bug repellent are recommended. This program includes activities that take place on natural surfaces across uneven terrain. Ages 5 or older. No registration required.
