Pease Public Library Event Calendar
|Time:||3:30 PM - 5:00 PM|
|Description:||Jerry Schneider has brought the wonderful world of bats to audiences since 2003, using amazing photos by Merlin D. Tuttle, former president of Bat Conservation International. This program features the echolocation calls of bats. What is echolocation? How loud is it? Why can’t we hear bats when they are echolocating? The bat program introduces audiences to local and tropical bats, the Vampire Bat, and many more of our only flying mammals. Via slides and taped bat calls, audiences move beyond old stereotypes, to understand the vital roles of bats in our environment. They will see slide photos of our Big Brown Bat, the Silver haired Bat, and the Desert Red Bat. Eyes will light up at such phenomenal creatures as Townsend’s Big Eared Bat and the Pallid Bat.
Tee shirt craft follows the slide show; you may bring your own shirt (not navy blue or black) or purchase one from Jerry for $5.
Mr. Schneider , a former teacher and children’s librarian, invented The Butterfly Game in 2001. It received a Parents Publication Award in 2004. He lives in Hardwick, Vermont.
