Minnesota's only mammal with powered flight can eat up to their body weight in insects every night! Even so, bat populations stand at the brink of collapse. Join Dodge naturalist Jeff Boland to explore the nocturnal lives of bats in Minnesota, play bat games and look for our flying friends at dusk.
Children ages 2 and under are free. Preregistration is required.
This program will be held outdoors, with CDC and MN Department of Health procedures in place. Please dress for the weather. Because of the group setting, face masks are required for your visit and use of hand sanitizer is encouraged.
We allow exemptions for those who have medical or other health conditions, disabilities or mental health, developmental, or behavioral needs that make it difficult to tolerate wearing a face covering. Please email or call us in advance of your program if this exemption applies to you or your child. We will create a plan with you that will ensure the safety of other program attendees and staff while allowing you to participate. Children between the ages of 2 and 5 years old are not required to wear face coverings, but are encouraged to wear a face covering if they can do so without frequently touching or removing it.
