Join Defenders of Wildlife at the Asheville Museum of Science for our summer Wildlife Workshop & Walkabout to learn about bats — which species live in our region, why they’re important, and how we’re addressing the conservation challenges they face. Special guest presenter: Nina Fascione, Defenders’ Vice President of Philanthropy and former Executive Director of Bat Conservation International. At the workshop we will build bat boxes to install on the campus New Belgium Brewing Company, which abuts the west shore of the French Broad River and provides great bat habitat! Because bats are nocturnal, our walkabout will start just before dusk when bats become active and will include the identification of other nocturnal creatures like moths and insects. You won’t want to miss it! WORKSHOP Thursday, July 19, 5:30pm-7:00pm Asheville Museum of Science 43 Patton Ave., Asheville, NC 28801 Light refreshments provided. WALKABOUT Saturday, July 21, 8:00pm-10:00pm. Sandy Bottom Preserve Parkway Crescent, Arden, NC 28704 For questions and to register, please contact Tracy at email@example.com.
