Feeling a little batty? Join us for a special lesson to learn more about bats and their role in the environment. Using a safely-preserved (real) bat, you will be able to get "up close and personal" as you explore the physical characteristics of the bat and discover just what makes it such an important and unique mammal. Our instructor and videos will guide you through the process of handling a bat and conducting your own scientific inquiry. This lesson is chock full of math and science and comes with a read along of the delightful book about bats.
