Monthly Meeting: A Night with Bats & the Bugs They Eat, by Barbara Ogaard

The contributions bats make to the quality of life on Earth and to the welfare of humans are many. Bats affect our lives in many ways-they are the major predator of night flying insects and agricultural pests, pollinators of many products we depend on, medical research and entertainment (lots of movies about vampires, killer bats and Count Dracula). Learn interesting facts about bats from Barbara Ogaard, naturalist and bat specialist. Barbara’s career has been as a Ranger/Naturalist teaching outdoor education and as a beach ranger and is on the  board of directors for Sarvey Wildlife Care Center and Bats Northwest. Enjoy an hour long presentation with slides, props and live bats. Time for Q&A about bathhouses, gothic gardening and bats living in your attic.

As always, all are welcome at our meetings, whether members or not. (Dues paying members get a newsletter by postal mail).

RSVP if you want an email reminder. Otherwise, just show up!

    This was an informative presentation. I am ready to install a bat house to help with the local population.
