We’d be happy to do a presentation for your group!
In addition to our Congress Avenue Bridge program (click to follow link for latest radar info and emergence times):
We also bring live local bats to our talks and for large groups, we use a close-focus video camera to show the features of the tiny native bat species up close and personal while maintaining a separation of audience and wild animals. We supply the video camera (actually a document reader) that we will connect to your AV equipment and big screen through an HDMI port. We ask you to supply a projector and screen and an IT person to hook up our laptop to your AV equipment.
We use a multi-media presentation to talk about the benefits of bats and how to live in harmony with these wonders of the natural world and can talk for up to an hour. We allow groups to walk past the bats, for a closer live look, as we hold them on the other side of our table as the group leaves.
We charge $250 for this type of program for groups of under 100. Discounts available for under-served and under-funded schools. Corporate event fees may be $500. Contact us for details.
Our calendar fills up fast in the fall season and slots are limited at that time of year. Bats are worth learning about at all times of year, not just at Halloween!
