Fran Hutchins, Director of the Bracken Bat Preserve, will offer a family-friendly program, "Bats in Our Neighborhood" in the library's meeting room. Bat snacks will be provided, and everyone is welcome!
Mexican free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasiliensis) live in caves in the southern US, Central and South America. Their colonies are the largest congregations of mammals in the world. The largest colony [at the Bracken Bat Preserve] has nearly 20 million bats, which eat around 250 tons of insects per night! Bats can travel hundreds of miles and fly to an altitude of 3,000 meters (10,000 feet or almost two miles) to feed on insects at night.
