Are you batty about bats? Humane Indiana Wildlife’s Education Center will host a Bat Appreciation Day on May 5 from noon to 3 p.m. The Education Center is located at 566 N. 450 E., Valparaiso, Ind.

 Join Humane Indiana Wildlife to learn about the different bat species native to Northwest Indiana and the ways you can help protect local bat populations. This family-friendly event will include crafts, activities, and an educational presentation.

 Attendees may tour three newly-renovated exhibits in the education center. The Lake Michigan Water Habitats exhibit, Migratory Bird exhibit, and Wetlands display provide a hands-on experience for attendees as they learn about the many threats to native wildlife.

 Funding for these exhibits was provided in part by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Lake Michigan Coastal Program.  Funding was also provided in part by ArcelorMittal and the Porter County Community Foundation. 

 For more information contact Nicole, nharmon@humaneindiana.org or 219-299-8027.
