Event Details

Bats are the world’s only true flying mammals—and they eat garden and crop pests and lower the risk of West Nile virus by consuming thousands of mosquitoes on a single night. 


Learn more about the environmental services native bats perform at “Incredible Bats.” The program, cosponsored by Field and Flower Garden Club, Green Thumbs Garden Club, and Citizens for Conservation, will feature educators Sharon and Dan Peterson, who have promoted bat education in the Midwest since 1996. Sharon is an elementary school teacher and librarian trained by Bat Conservation International; Dan is a bat naturalist. 



The program is free; registration is available on CFC’s website at http://bit.ly/2O24vHO . For more information, call CFC at 847-382-7283.
