RMSC DELIVERS: Bats

RMSC DELIVERS: Bats

This fun and interactive program will help your students to understand bats, and the important part they play in our ecosystem. With role-playing, hands-on objects, and demonstrations your class will show how a bat finds it’s way around, what different bats eat, and help to dispel some of the myths about bats while learning some surprising information too.

**Capacity may be limited in compliance with public health guidelines in effect on the day of your visit.
