This event will last from 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM. Please plan to stay for the entire event.
Event Description: The Bat Zone at the Cranbrook Institute of Science sponsors award-winning live bat programs that explore the fascinating world of bats. Visitors can find out why bats are beneficial, how to attract them, and the importance of their conservation. In addition, a behind-the-scenes tour of the Bat Zone will reveal large fruit bats (some with 6-foot wingspans), small micro bats, a rare sloth, owls, flying squirrels, and more.
What We Will Be Doing: One Brick Detroit volunteers will help with the daily care and maintenance of the facility including, sweeping, mopping, dusting and preparing food. Each one of the Straw Colored Fruit Bats eats about 4 pounds of fruit daily, so a great deal of food will be prepared!
What You Should Know: Dress comfortably. Closed toed shoes are recommended. Due to the nature of the work, do not wear anything you want to keep clean. Park in the structure for the Institute of Science.
Where to Meet: Meet at the Bat Zone Building which is 500 feet behind the Institute of Science. Follow the walkway to the end. The Bat Zone is the building where the sidewalk ends.
