9:00- 2:00 p.m.
Bloomington Education and Visitor Center
Come join us to learn more about our furry flying friends! Although we may not always see them, bats are hard at work each night- eating tons of insects, pollinating flowers, and spreading seeds that grow new plants and trees. Bats are often considered to be scary and creepy but they are actually fascinating and vital to the health of our environment and economy. Participants can learn more about bats (and why they need our help now more than ever) and build a FREE bat house to be used by bats to raise their pups. Other activities include a demonstration cave to explore, bat survey technology demonstration by MN DNR, bat presentations, face painting, bat trivia, arts and crafts, and planting native grass and wildflower seed for bats on the refuge!
