Do you or your children have questions about bats?  Come and join the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust on Saturday, May 26 (7:00 pm to 9 pm) at the Minden Cultural Center for a fun and informative presentation on bats, "Exploring the Lives of Bats".  These incredible animals are one of Ontario's largest consumers of insects and play a vital role in our ecosystem. Unfortunately bats also face many threats including loss of habitat and a fungal infection that has led to half of our species being listed as endangered. 
Our presenter, Brock Fenton, Emeritus Professor of Biology, has been studying bats since he received his Ph.D. in 1969 for work in the ecology and behaviour of bats.  He has continued his research with special emphasis on bat echolocation and evolution.
