Bat Appreciation Day Programs

Bat Appreciation Day

April 17th is Bat Appreciation Day. During the week of April 12th-17th, we are celebrating these little furry creatures who are often misunderstood by those who haven’t learned how important bats are to our our environment. Join us by learning about bats when you participate in a craft or read more about bats. Every craft comes with a bat fact sheet and Little Brown Bat pin. Be a bat advocate!
