Bats: Our Best Friends
2017 Education Outreach Project


Bats? Are they really blind? Do they get into your hair? Are they completely silent? The Putnam County Library system will host several programs by Carole Mackey for the area’s youth to bring the truth about these elusive animals to light.

Carole escapes every year from the snowy North to the Melrose area where under the sponsorship of the Santa Fe Audubon Society (http://www.santafeaudubon.org/), she has been sharing her enthusiasm and knowledge of the natural world with area libraries and the Ochwilla School for the last three years. The programs are designed to be fun and imaginative as well as educational.

This year the bat program, Bats: Our Best Friends, will feature an informative presentation followed by 4 to 8 interactive stations where the children can re-enforce and experience what they’ve just learned about bats. They’ll be able to listen to high frequency bat sounds which the human ear cannot hear, examine an actual bat skeleton with a magnifying glass, test their echolocation or ability to move by sound alone—no sight, and plan appropriate bat diets. And yes, adults are welcome.
