“EMBATTLED BATS”

Did you know that Vermont is home to nine species of bats? Did you know that Vermont is a leader in bat conservation? Come see striking images of these important and vulnerable Vermont mammals. And learn about their habitat, life cycle, and how you can help to protect them.  

Alyssa Bennett, Small Mammals Biologist for the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, will share visuals and news from her work with Vermont’s bats. Her talk, entitled “Embattled Bats,” is free and will begin at 7:30 pm on Saturday, February 17 at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier. Before her talk, at 6:00 pm, there will be a delicious vegetarian dinner prepared by Farmhouse Catering. The menu includes hot mulled cider, farmers’ green salad with buttermilk dressing, buttered noodles, vegetable bean and tofu stew, rolls and butter, red velvet cake and coffee/tea. Tickets to the dinner are $20 each. Advance purchase is strongly recommended as seating is limited.

“Embattled Bats” is the second in the 2018 Clarke Dinner and Lecture Series, an annual fundraiser for the Unitarian Church of Montpelier. On Saturday, March 17, Chet Mackenzie, Fisheries Program Manager for VT’s Fish & Wildlife Department, will present a slide show on “Lake Sturgeon: Champlain’s Giant, Prehistoric Fish.” The March talk will be preceded by a vegetarian dinner, also. For tickets, contact Nancy.
