Guest speaker Brandon Burger with Backyard Bird Shop will talk about local bats, how bats support local ecosystems and what people can do to support them. Bat specimens will be on display and partygoers can take fun photos with props. The event will also include raffle prizes and light refreshments. In honor of Green Neighbors’ waste-reduction mission, guests who bring their own reusable cup will receive a second raffle ticket.
