Come one, come all to the last event of the year— and it’s all about our furry, flying friends! Join the Blue Mountain Land Trust, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Audubon Society for a day at the Walla Walla Public Library to celebrate the birds, bats, and raptors of our home.
Here, you’ll find lots of fun bat, bird, and bug-inspired activities for kids of all ages. Come learn what owls eat by dissecting their pellets, make an origami bat, help us create a bat mural and so much more. You may even find some of Batman’s belongings lurking in the library. Keep an eye out!
We also are excited to welcome two special guests. Jenny Barnett, a USFWS Biologist, and Lynn Tomkins from the Blue Mountain Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Jenny will be sharing all she knows about bats and the important role in nature at 11:00 am. At 1:00 pm Lynn will introduce you to some of their resident raptors. Lynn will share their life histories, their role in a healthy environment, and our role in helping to maintain a harmonious coexistence with our native wildlife.
Did you know bats are the only mammals that fly? Come find out more fascinating facts on Saturday, October 28th!
