Bats have occupied our planet for fifty million years  yet we have only seriously studied them over the last six decades. With the help of a charming bat named Bugsy, we will explore the biology, ecology, sonar, cultural highs and horrific lows (White Nose Syndrome) of these extraordinary creatures. Gerri Griswold is Director of Administration and Development at the White Memorial Conservation Center in Litchfield. Over the years Gerry and her bats have presented hundreds of programs to libraries, schools and other community organizations such as the Peabody Museum and have produced a segment about bats for The Late Show with David Letterman.

We will be upstairs in a beautiful new barn. Please bring your own lawn chair and join us for a hot dogs after the program.
