In honor of Endangered Species Day, Lubee Bat Conservancy will host our Open House/Open Wings event, Saturday, May 20 from 11am to 3pm. The entrance fee is $5/person, and children 4 and under are free.
Guests will have a chance to listen to educational talks, check out native bat houses, talk to experts on installation and exclusion, and of course, view the beautiful bats playing with numerous toys. Great fun for all ages!
Director Brian Pope will give a special presentation on endangered species, wildlife trafficking, and the importance of preserving animals and habitats.
This family-friendly event focuses on endangered species, native bats, and viewing the largest bats in the world.
All proceeds benefit Lubee’s conservation and education efforts. The Facebook Open House/Open Wings event page is at https://www.facebook.com/events/408495889514803/).
