Come ‘hang’ in this webinar to get a glimpse into the lives of the only true flying mammal – the bat! Public Environmental Educator Megan Manes will share the basics about these often-misunderstood creatures, including what bats eat, how they find their food, and why they are so important both in the maintenance of our ecosystems and in our daily lives. You will also learn which bat species can be found in Stanley Park as Conservation Technician Meghan Cooling shares how our work supports them.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish people have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance offered by these lands and waters which enables us to live, work and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship practices and perspectives of the Coast Salish people.
