Some of the animals that make us scream are actually the coolest animals around. Meet critters from our big backyard and beyond during this live animal presentation and discover the unique adaptations which help them survive in their habitats. On Columbus Day Weekend, bats are back by popular demand! Come face-to-face with different bats from around the world–the North American Big Brown bat, the endangered Rodrigues bat, and the Malayan Flying Fox–a beautiful bat with a 6-foot wingspan. Learn how bats impact humans and keep our environment healthy as well as easy ways to make your backyard a refuge for these important animals. Learn more about the presenters NY Wild and the Organization for Bat Conservation.
