JOIN HUMANE INDIANA WILDLIFE TO GET BATTY ABOUT ONE OF OUR FAVORITE CREATURES OF THE NIGHT!
Choose an evening to join us! On Friday, September 15 and Saturday, September 16 from 5 – 9 p.m., we invite you to the Humane Indiana Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center in Valparaiso, IN, for an evening of everything about bats!
Did you know there are nearly 1,000 bat species worldwide? Do you know which bats are native to Indiana? AND bats make up a quarter of all mammal species on Earth! Get a close-up of their elongated fingers and winged membrane, and join us as we learn about this mysterious creature, the only mammal capable of flight. Then we’ll head out to our wildlife grounds for some wild bat-watching!
Fun for the whole family

The event will be held indoors and outside, so we encourage you to dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes or boots.
