Get Batty for Halloween!

 Treat your children to an October experience they’ll never forget: An encounter with real live bats! Rob Mies from the Organization for Bat Conservation (OBC) in Michigan returns to Lancaster on Sunday, October 26, with four of his winged friends.

Rob and his bats will take you into their mysterious world to explore their benefits, habitats, and nocturnal strategies. You will encounter a big brown bat from North America and hear its high-pitched echolocation with a “bat detector,” meet fruit bats from Africa and Asia, and finally, come face-to-face with the largest bat in the world, the gigantic flying fox bat from Malaysia, with its nearly six-foot wingspan!

Rob is a conservation biologist and TV personality as well as the director of OBC. He has appeared on The Tonight Show, The Today Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and The Ellen Degeneres Show. He is the co-author of the book Stokes Beginners Guide to Bats.

Hundreds have enjoyed Rob’s previous appearances in Lancaster. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see and learn more about these fascinating creatures!
