Before we actually saw any bats, Wil Taylor tought us about bats and their great value to the ecosystem. Bats eat about 1200 bugs during one good hour of hunting, for about three hours a night. He also named all nine bats that live here, and showed us pictures of them. After that, we went to look up into the bat boxes and got to see the awakening bats. Finaly, we got to stand and watch all the bats fly out of the boxes and listen to their sonar with a special tool. But this was at a cost, bugbites!
