Bat Program scheduled
As Halloween approaches, we will see a lot of references to witches, ghosts, pumpkins, and bats. Although we’ll see quite a few pumpkins over the next few weeks, we probably won’t see many witches or ghosts. And, we probably won’t see many bats, either.
To find out why we won’t see many bats around Halloween, you are invited to attend a program entitled Bats! at Forest Plaza Assisted Living, Forest City. The program will be held Thursday, Oct. 10, from 2-3 p.m.
During the program, Winnebago County Naturalist will discuss which bats live here in north Iowa and why bats are important, as well as some fascinating facts about bats. She will also tell people how they can help out bats and will even bring along some “bat food” for people to taste. (What is “bat food”? You have to come to the program to find out.)
Although the Bats! program will be held at Forest Plaza, it will be open to the public and will be free of charge. There is also no need to preregister.
