Bats: Creatures of the Night
Time & Place
Mercer County Wildlife Center, 1748 River Rd, Titusville, NJ
Bats have a reputation for being spooky or dangerous – but they are actually some of the most beneficial animals for people! They keep mosquitoes in check, preventing itchy bites, and are estimated to be worth up to $53 billion a year in reduced crop damage and pesticide use in the United States. Find out what bats call New Jersey home, how bats can be beneficial to humans, and explore common myths and misconceptions about bats. Learn about current threats to bats, and what we can do to help combat them. We'll demonstrate how to build a bat house, and have three completed houses, and for the adventurous, one kit you can build yourself - each available for a $50 donation.
