We will begin in our brand new theater with a discussion about common myths and rears regarding these fascinating flyers. discovering their importance to our ecosystem. We will then go on a short walk to the quartermaster stable, a "bat house", and into the forest in search of local bats (and owls!) sailing through the night sky.
