A Bat-tacular Full Moon Hike                                 
Friday January 2, 6:30 – 8:00
Join us around the fireplace for treats and the retelling of Batwings & the Curtain of Night. This wonderful old creation myth explores how the stars and moon came to be, and why, to this day, bats crowd together and hang upside down. Following our story we’ll head out for a moon-lit hike to the cave where we’ll search for hibernating bats.
