Join us for fun arts and crafts as
we celebrate Bat Week!

Sunday, October 23rd to Saturday, October 29th

Bats make up almost one fourth of mammal species but are often overlooked because of their nocturnal habits. Around the world, bats play important roles in seed dispersal, pollination, and pest insect control. Did you know that 4 out of 8 Ontario bat species are endangered?

See below for seven different bat activities you can do from home including a video tutorial, shopping lists, and more!
