Nurture Nature Series - Bats
HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW BATS?
Crazy as a Bat? Bats in the Belfry? Blind as a Bat? How did bats get such a strange reputation when they are actually a vital component of our eco-system? Who knew bats help control insect populations or are great pollinators? Are they really blind? What’s the scoop on sonar?
Baytown Nature Center Naturalist, Crissy Butcher presents an informative session on bats at this month’s Nurture Nature Series on Saturday, October 5th beginning at 10:00am. Discover facts about a bat’s life cycle and habitat. Find out why they are so important to the environment. How and, even stranger, why would you want to attract bats to your yard? All these questions and more will be answered as Crissy shares some cool batty visual aids, a bat house and enough information to make you a bat expert just in time for Halloween. You’ll even learn how to build a bat house and get a free set of plans to take home.

The programs are free with general admission to the Baytown Nature Center: $3 for adults and children 13 and older.
