Join bat researcher Ela-Sita Carpenter for an evening of bats. (Here she's pictured in front of Rose Guano Cave in Nevada, home to Nevada's largest free-tail bat colony.)
This is a great way for adults and children alike to get ready for Halloween and to take a second look at these sometimes-maligned animals.
Ela-Sita will talk about the benefits of bats, share her experiences with bat research, and focus on what we can do to help these flying mammals.
Her Master's thesis research focused on abandoned building roosts of Rafinesque's Big-eared bats in Virginia. She's also studied bats in Nevada and assisted with data analysis for the world's largest fruit bat colony in the Philippines.
