Learn about Local Bats

What do human fingertips have in common with a bat’s wing? Both have tactile sensory cells called Merkel cells, which are only found in the skin of vertebrates. Interested in these intriguing flying mammals? Join us, along with local bat expert Greg Falxa for a fun, fact-filled bat talk and walk to learn about bat habitat needs, basic bat biology and their unique life strategies.
