Bats are fascinating and very beneficial critter to have around, despite their spooky reputation. Join our guest speaker, Marne Titchenell, a wildlife program specialist, as we dispel the myths surrounding bats, discuss how they help us, and learn how we can help them as they face a very deadly disease, called white-nose syndrome.
