This class has been postponed. New date to be announced.
Join Midcoast Conservancy on Tuesday June 20 at 6 pm for an introduction to one of the planet’s most fascinating creatures – the bat! Bats are likely the most misunderstood and under-appreciated creatures on the planet. They are also among the most unique, playing an essential role in the ecology of our planet and saving US agriculture billions of dollars each year.
In this lively presentation, Annie Kassler of Maine Bat Education will open your eyes to the truth about bats and why you should care about them. She will also debunk persistent myths, demonstrate how to move a stray bat from your house and provide the latest update on White Nose Syndrome, a disease which has devastated bat populations in Maine and all of eastern North America.
Kassler is a Speaker with Bat Conservation International and a member of the White Nose Syndrome Communications Group, the Northeast Bat Working Group and the Maine Bat Working Group. Her presentation and slide show has received rave reviews throughout Maine.
