Join us at the Indiana Bat Festival, hosted by the Center for Bat Research, Outreach and Conservation! This annual festival celebrates the unique role of bats in the ecosystem, and works to dispel the myths surrounding these amazing creatures. Daytime activities will occur at Indiana State University’s Science Building from 10 am-4 pm. Events include talks by leading bat biologists, live animal demonstrations, batty bake sale, silent auction, bat merchandise for sale, face painting, and many children’s activities. Evening events will take place from 6-10 pm at Dobbs Park (5170 Poplar Street). Evening events include the “BatVentures” obstacle course, live raptor program, and listening for bats at sunset!

The goal of the festival is to teach people about the fascinating world of bats and inspire people to protect the environment. Spend your Saturday at this family-friendly gathering and learn more about these amazing creatures.
