Bat Awareness Weekend
Saturday, August 17 - Sunday, August 18
Bats are amazing animals, and are entirely undeserving of their scary reputation. They also need our help! Half of Ontario’s beats are on the endangered species list. Join the team from the Toronto Zoo’s Native Bat Conservation Program in the Zoo’s front courtyard to learn the truth about bats, and the work we are doing save them. We hope to see you there. Even if you are scared of bats – we can change that.
Learn about the eight species of bats in Ontario.
Test your hearing listening to recordings of bat’s ultrasonic calls, and try out a bat detector.
See our model bat houses and learn about installing your own.
Crafts and colouring – make your own paper bats to take home.
Saturday, August 17th and Sunday, August 18th
10:00am – 4:00pm
Free with admission
