SUnday Bat Education Workshop
The NASBR Outreach and Education committee is hosting a workshop for NASBR participants and local educators on Sunday, October 15 from 9am to 3pm at a local nature center, Fort Whyte Alive. The outreach workshop itself will run from 9am until noon with topics including creating outreach on a budget, bat walks, and bat gardening. We are excited to have a naturalist, artist, photographer and educator, Heather Hinam, joining us, presenting on how “A picture is worth a thousand words.” We are also excited to have Dan Riskin, Canadian evolutionary biologist, TV personality, and author, joining us to talk about sharing science with the public.
The workshop will conclude with lunch. In the afternoon, the coordinators will host a community outreach event from 1 to 3pm for local visitors to the nature center. Participants in the workshop may either join us for the outreach or enjoy the nature centre during the afternoon. Cost for NASBR participants includes transportation to the event and back to the hotel. Contact the workshop educators at NASBRTeacherWorkshop@gmail.com for more information.
