Let’s Celebrate Bat Week
By Kathy Conner Cornell VCE Southside Master Gardener Bat Week is held from October 24 to October 31. It is “an international celebration of the role of bats in nature” according to Bat Conservation International. If we can get past our negative bat bias and learn the importance of bats in our world, we would find these creatures are totally fascinating. Think about it, bats are the only mammal that can fly and yes, they are a mammal, not a rodent.
