OCTOBER 1OTH: "BATS IN THE LAND OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN"

Did you know that we have bats in Alaska? The Alaska Center for Conservation Science has been studying little brown bats (yes which is actually their name) in Anchorage and southcentral Alaska. This has led to new and exciting discoveries about how bats survive in the land of the midnight sun. Come celebrate National Bat Appreciation Month with Amanda Droghini and learn more about these fascinating flying mammals!
