Calling all bat fans! Wednesday, August 29 at 8:30 p.m., see the zoo in a whole new light (or, in this case no light)!
Zoo staff will host the first-ever Bat Night at the Zoo. Bat experts with BYU-Idaho and Veolia Nuclear Solutions will introduce you to the bats of Idaho, why they’re important, and how your zoo is helping expand the knowledge of local bats.
We’ll start with a brief presentation for the adults and activities for the kids in the Jack Hamilton on the former county fairgrounds. Park in the fairgrounds lot and go up the cement steps to enter the Hamilton building. As it gets dark, we’ll go in to the zoo and explore the bats the visit each night to feed.
Cost of the event is $5.50 per person ages 4 and over. 3 and under is free.
Register for Bat Night at the Zoo HERE. You’ll discover bats really are the super heroes of the animal world!
Zoo hours are daily 9 a.m.-6 p.m. now through Labor Day.
