Bat Bonanza - Nature in Flight Series

Event date and time
August 5, 2023 - 7:30 PM to August 5, 2023 - 8:30 PM

Join staff from Nature Up North, Nicandri Nature Center, Cornell Cooperative Extension, and Indian Creek Nature Center for a four part series on North Country Nature in Flight this summer. Learn how a variety of different animals use flight to their advantage, whether that’s for finding food, showing off to others, or just getting around. Throughout this series we’ll learn to see the skies and its flying critters with a whole new perspective!

To wrap up our eight-week series, meet us at Indian Creek Nature Center for a bat bonanza! How is bat flight different (or similar) to any of the other critters we’ve discussed? What’s it like to be the only mammal capable of true flight? We’ll discuss this and more, while keeping our eyes and ears open and our bat detectors turned on for signs of bats around us! Come learn how bat detectors work, and why they’re important for many different science applications. Who knows what flying mammals might make themselves known?

This event is free and perfect for all ages. Reach out to info@natureupnorth.org or contact @natureupnorth on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with any questions.
