Florida's Fabulous Bats - Weedon
Friday, October 25, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
Many myths and misconceptions exist about one of the most unique mammals in Florida – the Florida bat. Did you know bats literally fly with their hands? Did you know bats have highly developed sonar capabilities called echolocation? Florida is home to 13 species of bats that are year-round or seasonal residents. All these bats devour insects and are beneficial to our environment. Come meet some of these live animals at this fascinating night program presented by the Florida Bat Conservancy from 7 to 8 p.m. Free but advance registration required.
