When we think of bats, we think of dark caves, scary stories, Dracula, and, of course, Halloween.
But the truth is that bats are one of nature’s most adaptable and astounding creatures. In addition to using a sophisticated form of communication called echolocation, these nocturnal pollinators play an integral role in the ecosystem.
Join Claudia Reynoso of the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Arizona to gain expert insight into these fascinating animals. Claudia will offer a general overview on bats. She will also be explaining the ecosystem assistances bats provide in agricultural settings and the research her lab has done on bats and the services they provide in cotton fields. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about this intriguing Halloween icon.
Showings at 12 noon.
