Northwest bats are a curiosity. They are the only mammals that fly. Did you know that bats help control the insect population? Back by popular demand, Kathleen Bander, the founder of Bats Northwest, joins the fun at our Skagit Valley Giant Pumpkin Festival to talk about the 15 species of bats native to Washington. Learn all about these creatures and their habits along with night-blooming plants that insects are attracted to that Northwest bats eat! Students can be up close and personal with real mounted specimens in small, glass-covered boxes. An educational and inspiring class for all!
