FL Fish & Wildlife Commission biologist, Kathleen Smith, will dispel myths about bats, teach you their importance in our ecosystem, and tell you how you can help. This evening outdoor workshop will describe native bat species found at CREW and their role in the ecosystem and includes hands-on activities related to bat capture and research. Bats are critically important to the functioning of the natural ecosystem by consuming insects and agriculture pests.

What to wear/bring: Bug spray/head nets/mosquito jackets.  Long pants, long shirt, and close-toed shoes that can get wet. You might want to double up on clothes, the more layers the less bites :).
