Getting Batty

April 13th, 2011

As a bat enthusiast, I cannot help but encourage you to spread your wings at the Wisconsin Bat Festival, Saturday, April 16 (10:00 AM – 4:00 PM). The festival will feature opportunities to learn about different bat species from experts Rob Miles and Dave Redell, and enable you to discover, and contribute to, the essential conservation efforts being made worldwide. Hands-on projects include constructing your own backyard roost.

The Wisconsin Bat Festival will be held at the Lussier Family Heritage Center, Lake Farm County Park (3011 Lake Farm Road, Madison). See directions here.

All proceeds will benefit the Wisconsin Bat Conservation Fund. Festival entrance fees are $8.00 per adult (16+); children free (with paying adult).
