Triton College Science Lecture Series Presents ‘Beautiful Bats’ – Oct. 29
Are you feeling left in the dark when it comes to bats? You’re not alone. Bats are one of the most beneficial and misunderstood of all animals.
Join us on Monday, Oct. 29 when the Triton College Science Lecture Series presents ‘Beautiful Bats.’ The free event will take place from 2-3 p.m. in Room J-112.
The program is filled with information about where bats live, what they eat and the vital contribution they make to the ecosystem. We dispel old beliefs and superstition and explain why we need bats and why they need us. We bring along some of our fruits bats so everyone can experience their gentle nature up close and in person.
Flying Fox Conservation Fund founder and director Scott Heinrichs has worked more than fifteen years on the Sulawesi fruit bat conservation project which is dedicated to aiding endangered fruit bats of Indonesia. He has been written about by the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Tribune Magazine, Chicago Parent Magazine and Audubon magazine. Heinrichs has also written articles for BATS magazine.
