Bats are amazing animals that are vital to the health of our environment and economy - eating tons of insects nightly, pollinating flowers, and spreading seeds that that grow new plants and even trees. Join us for an exciting, live broadcast, “Project Edubat – Education Taking Flight” on October 29 from 2 to 3 p.m. ET to learn more about these important animals. This free broadcast will feature activities, resources, and lesson plans to help you teach both children and adults about bats. Learn how to use newly developed bat educational trunks that will be available across the country for your use! Special appearances by live bats and a few of our favorite bat experts including: Cathy Johnson, U.S. Forest Service; Dianne Odegard, Bat Conservation International; Ann Froschauer, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; and Leslie Sturges, The Save Lucy Campaign.
