NEIGHBORHOOD BATS

Although mysterious creatures, bats are critical to the health of our ecosystem. Here in Connecticut bats provide a service few of us can appreciate. Yet, all of us benefit from the effective pest control service they provide - and they do it for free!

Neighborhood Bats will be our topic for Saturday’s Workshop at 10:30 in the Beer Tent. Come hear Master Wildlife Conservationist Maureen Heidtmann present a program about bats of Connecticut. Maureen will cover how to encourage and protect the bats around us by showing us how to construct a proper bat house. She will also be discussing the current bat population and how it is being affected by the devastating fungal disease white nose syndrome.

We look forward to seeing you!
