Live Bat Encounter

Saturday, August 26th, 11 a.m. 

New Buffalo Township Library, The Pokagon Room.

They say bats are as cute as puppies and now you'll be able to determine that for yourself. The Organization for Bat Conservation (OBC) is coming to the New Buffalo Township Library to present this exciting program which takes an up-close-and-personal view of these amazing animals. You'll meet a Big Brown bat from North America and hear its high-pitched echolocation with a bat detector, meet fruit bats from Africa and Asia, and come face-to-face with the largest bat in the world, the Gigantic Flying Fox Bat from Malaysia. This beautiful bat has a nearly 6-foot wingspan! OBC's entertaining founder and director, Rob Mies, has appeared on many television shows with his furry winged friends including The Tonight Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

This event is FREE, but seating is limited!
