I loved that we could see actual bats in the bat houses. I learned a great deal about the Big and Litter Brown bats. I'm actual thinking of putting a bat house on my own property.

Love the event. It was the first time I ever saw the Perseid meteor shower and I plan to do it again next year.

As usual, Chris did a good talk. I would have liked it as an adult only for a little more time to really get into the plants, but he is always good at telling stories about things to the kids.
