Hi all,

I thought you might be interested in this evening of bats that we are hosting at 
the Audubon center on August 22 from 7-9. Maybe you could post the event on your 
Facebook page or in your letter. Sorry that it is last minute.

Living in the city, you might sometimes forget that we have a whole bunch of 
wildlife as neighbors in Prospect Park. If you’re curious about what comes out 
after dark in the park, you may want to check out their Creatures of the 
Night<> event 
this Thursday, August 22 at 7pm:

Expert Naturalist, Paul Keim will lead a conversation over wine and cheese 
explaining the ecological role that bats and nocturnal insects play in our 
environment. As the sun goes down, he will lead a walk to look for bat species 
in flight as they hunt and dive for insects, as well as demonstrate how to 
distinguish between different species using an echolocation device. This walk is 
also an excellent time to watch as cicadas emerge from their underground 
slumber, listen for katydids and crickets, and learn about the natural wonder of 
Prospect Park.

The event is 21+ and costs $25. Reservations are required. Call 718-287-3400 
x303 for more info.
