Wednesday, November 6, 2013 from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM (PST)
Please join us on November 6th in the multipurpose room at Brighton School to learn interesting facts about Bats with Barbara Ogaard, Naturalist and Bat Specialist. Barbara is on the Board of Directors at Sarvey Wildlife Care Center and Bats Northwest. Her career has been with local Parks and Recreation as a ranger and interpretive guide. She is a rehabilitator of Bats. The free talk will be of interest to children and adults alike. Enjoy an hour long presentation with slides, props and live Bats!!!
The contributions bats make to the quality of life on Earth and to the welfare of humans is huge. Bats affect our lives in many ways such as being a major predator of night-flying insects and agricultural pests, pollinators of important crops we depend on, medical research, and even entertainment (130 movies have been made about bats including documentaries, Count Dracula, and vampire bats).
The garden space at Brighton School was awarded Certified Wildlife Habitat status. This talk is the second of a series of talks related to local wildlife with the aim of increasing our community's awareness of native habitats and the creatures that contribute to their ecosystems.
Extra parking for the event is located across 67th Ave W at New Vision Church (21110 66th Ave W, Lynnwood, WA).
Space is limited so please RSVP. Please join us!
