Goin' Batty!

  • Location: ISM Dickson Mounds Museum, Lewistown
  • Date: Sunday, October 26, 2014, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join us as we learn all about bats. Enjoy hands-on activities and crafts. Live bat presentation courtesy of Incredible Bats will begin at 2:00 pm in the Museum's auditorium. Seating is limited. Tickets are available beginning at 1:00 pm the day of the program on a first come, first served basis.

Sharon Peterson of Incredible Bats will present a live bat show featuring Egyptian Fruit Bats and African Straw-Colored Bats. The presentation will highlight the importance of bats, e.g., how they help pollinate plants and trees and eat mosquitoes, and dispel many myths.  Participants will have an up-close look at these unique creatures.  Photo opportunities with the bats will be available after the presentation.  Local researchers will also be on-hand to provide insight into the bat populations of the Illinois River Valley.  Kids may also enjoy hands-on craft activities before and after the program.   The live bat show will begin at 2:00 p.m. Free tickets are available beginning at 1:00 p.m. the day of the program on a first-come, first-served basis.  Seating is limited in the auditorium.  Admission is free and all ages are welcome.
