BATS - BOLD, BEGUILING, BLESSED, BEAUTIFUL

Join us for an afternoon to learn all about these beautiful, beneficial, bug devouring creatures.

Bat expert Corky Quirk, of NorCalBats, will give a presentation about bats native to California.

Corky uses live bats in her presentation to illustrate the importance of bats in our environment,

as well as some of the issues they face, and the harmful myths that surround them.

There is no charge for this event; however, donations are encouraged.
