Program Cost$150.00
TypeIn Class (approx 1 hr)

Did you know that bats can eat their body weight in insects in a night? Or that some residents of the Columbia Basin have rare bat species living in their garden shed?

During this program, you'll find out more about the amazing world of bats including their biology, ecology and myths. Students get a virtual tour of bats from around the world, eavesdrop on the echolocation calls of bats, touch and feel bat research equipment.

"Joanne was very enthusiastic about the topic as well as knowledgeable - although my students' questions did stump her a few times! I have recommended this presentation and educator as it is an engaging presentation, and there is lots of variety; for example, students are up moving around at times and playing several different games. She also has some great visuals. " - Megan Jamison
