"Bat"urday and FREE Recycling

"Bat"urday, including FREE Community Recycling Depot 2013

Event Title: "Bat"urday

Date: Saturday, April 6th, 2013

Time: 12pm – 4pm
Batty & Scar, World Bird Sanctuary's Straw-colored Fruit Bats
Event Description:
Bats are interesting and misunderstood creatures.  Did you know that their bug-eating habits are worth $25 billion to the U.S. agricultural industry?  Contrary to the old wives’ tale, they are not going to try and nest in your hair.  At “Bat”urday you can learn more about the environmental and economic importance of these animals, the threats they face, and what you can do to help bats survive.

Join us for an interesting day of bat presentations, where you’ll meet our resident Straw-colored Fruit Bats and watch our bat trainer give them enrichment.  Biologists from MDC and MoDot will teach you all about Missouri bats and give updates on White Nose Syndrome, a disease that’s killing many bats.  Meet live Missouri bats from Batworld Ozarks and learn what it’s like to be a bat researcher with our bat netting and research activity!  We will also be giving out bat house plans so that you can go home and build your very own bat house!
