Join us in Diana’s Field with local librarian Maureen Heidtmann who moonlights as a bat expert and rehabilitator! This all-ages presentation will cover bat populations in Connecticut, the threats they face, and how we can help to protect them. She will also bring some of her furry flying friends with her!
Maureen Heidtmann has been working with bats for more than 25 years. She is a licensed wildlife rehabilitator and a Certified Wildlife Conservationist with the State of Connecticut’s DEEP. She has been presenting programs, chiefly about bats, for many years, including one on Long Island which drew more than 300 people. She has recently been written about in Connecticut Wildlife Magazine and several newspapers for rescuing and raising an endangered species Eastern Small-footed bat, the first of its kind to be seen in the state since 1940.
