About this event

Join Wild Virginia and Bat Conservation & Rescue of Virginia for a special evening of BATSTRAVAGANZA! It’s spooky season, and it’s time to take to the skies with one of the most misunderstood mammals ever. We are excited to partner with Bat Conservation & Rescue of Virginia, formerly The Save Lucy Campaign, which strives to raise awareness of Virginia’s native bat species and their conservation needs through public education, rescue & rehabilitation of orphaned, injured and displaced bats, and support for meaningful, humane research that benefits declining species. In this special virtual event, attendees will learn about Virginia’s native bats and their incredible characteristics and lifestyles; as well as current threats to those bats and what we can all do to help protect them.

Leslie Sturges, Bat Conservation & Rescue of Virginia’s President, believes in Wild Virginia’s mission of protecting and connecting our favorite wild places. She will be with us virtually to educate and empower attendees to help protect Virginia’s bats. In 2011, Leslie founded what is now Bat Conservation & Rescue of Virginia to focus on white nose syndrome, bats native to the eastern US, youth advocacy, and conservation education through art. Over the past 20 years, she has cared for well over 1,000 bats and has maintained a colony of bats that visit schools and other venues to educate the public about bats and wildlife conservation.

Join us for this special batty evening, you wont want to miss it - and you may even gain a new favorite animal out of it! This event also coincides with Bat Week 2021, which you can learn more about here at https://batweek.org. You can also visit Bat Conservation & Rescue of Virginia at their website: www.virginiabats.org.
