Together Yes – Mosquito Eaters: a Bat Party!

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015 at 7:00 pm

batsTogether Yes is hosting a presentation, discussion, and celebration as the second event in its Fall 2015 Sustainability Series: “Mosquito Eaters: a Bat Party.” Brown bats, the most prevalent type of bat in New England, can eat between 300-3,000 mosquitoes in one night. Their reputation as prolific spreaders of disease is unwarranted. Come to the bat party to learn about these helpful creatures and celebrate both bat lore and Halloween. Refreshments will be served.
