Next Meeting - 6:30 PM Thu April 9, 2015

Pilcher Park Nature Center

Joliet, Illinois

Program: Scott Heinrichs - Beautiful Bats


Flying Fox Conservation Fund director Scott Heinrichs will present a program on "Beautiful Bats". Bats are one of the most beneficial and misunderstood of all animals.


His program is filled with information about where bats live, what they eat and the vital contribution they make to the ecosystem.


He dispels old beliefs and superstition

and explains why we need bats. He

will bring 3 species of LIVE BATS, a

slide program and a film on white nose syndrome.


So come to the meeting so you can

experience their gentle nature up close and in person.


All Will County Audubon Society meetings are free and open to the public.
