Educational Programs We often partner with colleagues to provide unique educational opportunities for citizen-scientists to learn more about bats. This year we are offering a special workshop in Central Texas that highlights bats as vital resources for commercial agriculture. This event will encourage backyard-naturalists, organic gardeners, and the general public to think more holistically about human impacts on our planet. Join us to discover more about the importance of bats on our planet!
