OUR NEXT EARTH FRIENDLY FRIDAY PROGRAM:

“GOING BATTY” (All about bats).

OCT. 5, 2018 – Social time, 6:30, Program, 7:00

“Holy double-feature Batman!” Come out on Friday, October 5th and watch a movie about these misunderstood creatures of the night! The Blue Ridge Land Conservancy is hosting its last 2018 Outdoor Adventure at Earth FriendlyFriday.

Bats are often considered a “keystone species” and without their pollination and seed-dispersing services, some ecosystems could gradually collapse. They also help humans by eating irritating insects! Bats can eat up to 1,500 mosquitos in one night. Sadly, in the past several years, they have struggled against fungal infections and habitat loss.

After the movie you will have the option to construct your own bat box to take home to create bat habitat in your back yard! The cost is $12 per box. Just bring safety goggles and a hammer, and BRLC will provide the rest!

This program is presented by the Blue Ridge Land Conservancy.  The BRLC is a non-profit based in Roanoke that works to conserve western Virginia’s natural resources including farms, forests, waterways, and rural lands. Our goal is to protect land from over-development and help younger generations explore the world around them; and in the process create a new generation of conservationists.

ALL PROGRAMS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
