Bat Week 2021

Bat Week is Oct. 24 - Oct. 31! This is an excellent opportunity to celebrate bats. Bats do a lot of things that help our natural areas be strong and healthy:
  • Some bats eat insects that destroy crops and spread disease.
  • Some bats pollinate plants, like agave.
  • Bats help spread seeds to grow new plants.
Everybody can get in on the Bat Week fun. Visit for a full list of inspiring Bat-ivities. Here's a few examples of what you'll find there.
  • Show your bat appreciation on social media, using #BatWeek.
  • Host a bat-centric party.
  • Cook up a dish make possible by bats. (Pumpkin Chocolate Fudge sounds pretty good! And bats eat the insects that harm cacao plants.)
  • Update your social media profile pic with the Bat Week twibbon.
Thanks for going to bat for bats this Bat Week!
