I found the presentations and hands-on taxidermy bats very interesting and informative. In addition, the explanations of the crisis faced by PA bat populations via White Nose Fungus and the technologies being used to determine populations and understand bat biology were presented in a way to reach both adults and younger ones in attendance. Overall, a very enjoyable evening of environmental education.
