Going Batty

September 17 from 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

$35 member / $50 nonmember
Instructor: Dr. Cullen Geiselman
Ages 16 and up

Celebrate the Arboretum’s first annual Bat Fest by going batty! Did you know that bats are the pollinators of the tequila agave? Listen to bat expert Cullen Geiselman, who will discuss the important role of bats in our ecosystem as pest control, seed dispersers, and pollinators. Guests 21 and up will also be able to enjoy a delicious tequila popsicle from KICPOPS. Then we’ll go on a bat hike using special detectors to listen to bat sonar over the Arboretum.

This class involves a nighttime hike. Please dress for the weather and wear walking shoes. We will provide DEET-based mosquito repellant.
