Bats are important!

Kewanna Union Township Public Library will be hosting two special events to increase the public’s awareness of the importance of bats in our environment. 

The events will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 11:00 a.m. and Thursday, Oct. 19 at 5:30 p.m.  

Tony Carroll, DNR Wildlife Biologist, will be sharing information about ways that bats help in pest control and pollination of plants.  Some types of bats are rapidly becoming endangered and need our help. Carroll will explain ways to conserve our natural resources that will help to increase the number of bats. 

All of those that attend will be able to make and take home their own bat house after the presentation.  A limited number of bat house kits are available.  Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.

This program was made possible at the Kewanna Union Township Public Library through a grant received from Arrow Head Country RC & D.   Fulton County Soil & Water Conservation District is partnering with the library for these special events.
