Even though they are often feared, bats are an important part of the ecosystem. This program will focus on the benefits of bats, what threats they face, and what we can do to help bats. A story and an educational activity will be followed by a hike around 1000 Islands* to look for bats in the wild. Please be prepared for hiking in the dark. This program is best suited for youth in grades two and up. Program held at 1,000 Islands Environmental Center.
