The UT Arboretum Goes Batty on November 2nd


Learn all about Tennessee’s bats from an expert!

It’s Bat Time at the UT Arboretum on Thursday, November 2nd at 6:30pm. We know that bats eat mosquitoes and help pollinate plants but there is so much more to this mysterious creature.  Sponsored by the UT Arboretum Society, this family friendly program will be led by Pandy English, the Assistant Chief of Biodiversity for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the UT Arboretum Auditorium, 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge, the program will include a PowerPoint presentation, bat “show and tell” items, and children’s activities at the end.  Attendees will learn about bat myths and facts, the characteristics and types of bats in Tennessee and why bats are one of our most invaluable species.

This program is one of many lectures and activities offered this year by the UT Arboretum Society, celebrating 52 years in 2017. The program is cosponsored by the UT Forest Resources AgResearch and Education Center.
