MADISON (WKOW) -- It's time to bring your "battitude" and your family for a fun adventure into the world of bats! The Wisconsin Bat Festival is this Saturday May 12, 2012 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Warner Park Community Recreation Center!
At the event you can meet live bats from around the world and visit with Wisconsin's backyard bats. You'll get to see fruit bats from Africa and Asia, a Vampire Bat, and encounter the largest bat in the world, the gigantic Malayan Flying Fox which has nearly a 6-foot wingspan! Also, this year's special guest is Brian Lies, author and illustrator of the children's books Bats at the Beach, Bats at the Library, and Bats at the Ballgame.
For kids, they can enjoy hands-on activities, games, crafts, and displays. They can even interact with local bat experts. The price is $10 for adults. Kids under 16 are free when accompanied by an adult. All proceeds benefit the Wisconsin Bat Conservation Fund.
