Arboretum at Night: Wine, Cheese and Bats


Nighttime in the summer forest is an enchanting symphony of sounds and mysterious spaces enlivened by wildlife on the move. Come out and discover which creatures are sounding off, participate in bat education seminar and take a night hike into a forest rich in sounds and excitement. Enjoy an outdoor wine and cheese reception followed by a brief classroom presentation by Dr. Cullen Geiselman before heading out into the night for a ‘bat walk’ on the Arboretum grounds to spotlight and detect bats using an ultrasonic bat detector. Dr. Cullen Geiselman will give a brief summary of the world’s bat species, their habitats, and life histories. She will also discuss the eight local bat species found in the Houston area and dispel some of the common bat myths.
