Battitude (May 12)

April 23rd, 2012

Spread your wings at the Wisconsin Bat Festival, Saturday, May 12 (9:00 AM – 5:00 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.

And, this year, meet author and illustrator, Brian Lies.  His children’s books include Bats at the Beach, Bats at the Library, and Bats at the Ballgame.
The Wisconsin Bat Festival will be held at the Warner Park Community Recreation Center.  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).  See flyer.
