The Science Building was crowded with humans and flying mammals alike on Sept. 16, 2017, for the 11th annual Indiana Bat Festival, hosted by the Center for Bat Research, Outreach, and Conservation. Students and community members could encounter live bats, listen to speakers, meet with conservation organizations, and learn about bat boxes while exploring the Science Building hallways. Children were also welcome at the event as there was a “bat cave” for them to play in as well as face-painting and a bat game room. The event continued on into the evening at John G Dobbs Memorial Grove, where attendees could go on bat adventures and continue learning more from bat professionals. The event has seen significant growth over the past few years and organizers are looking forward to another year of planning the next bat festival.
