Bat Appreciation Night

Did you know there are nearly 1,000 bat species worldwide? Do you know which bats are native to Indiana? AND bats make up a quarter of all mammal species on earth. Get a close-up of their elongated fingers and winged membrane and join us as we learn all about this mysterious creature, the only mammal capable of flight. Then we’ll head out to our wildlife grounds for some wild bat-watching! Time: 7:00 – 9:00 pm.

This is a family-friendly event with activities and crafts for all ages, live mist-netting demonstrations,  and night hikes using night vision goggles.
