Bat Appreciation Day Celebration

Join us on April 13 & 14 to celebrate International Bat Appreciation Day with educational Discovery Tables, arts & crafts, and animal encounters!

International Bat Appreciation Day is April 17. This holiday reminds us of the vital role that bats play in our daily lives. Did you know that plants such as bananas, mangoes, cashews, dates, avocadoes, peaches, cloves, and figs (to name a few) rely on bats for pollination? Bats also help distribute the seeds of these plants, so they can reproduce and create more fruit for us humans to eat and enjoy. Bats are also a natural form of insect control, most bats living in the U.S. and Canada eat insects such as mosquitoes. For instance, one little brown bat can catch 600 mosquitoes or more an hour! If bats disappear, the insect population will boom, causing crop failure, economic damage, and human illness.
