It’s a scary place out there right now…for bats! For Halloween, come hear three scary stories about bats confronted with a changing world–and how they’re responding. There’s little brown bats faced with the introduced disease white-nose syndrome, evening bats facing climate change, and silver-haired bats encountering urban landscapes on their migratory journeys. How these bats respond highlights the diverse ways in which animals can cope with our changing world.

Event will be held virtually over zoom.
