in search of bats
Those shadows flitting about the night sky aren't birds...and they're not vampires either. They are flying mammals! Join us as we investigate the myths and facts about our fabulous neighbors - bats! We'll roast marshmallows around a cozy campfire while we learn about bats, then go on a hike to find these mosquito-eating machines. We'll use bat detectors to "listen" for them as they search for food. Wear long sleeves, pants, and some bug repellent
