ATTRACTING BATS TO YOUR BACKYARD: HOW AND WHY TO DO IT Please join us at the Savage Library on Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. when Master Gardener Lisa Wingate presents "Attracting Bats to Your Backyard: How and Why to Do It".

Their preferred habitats, houses, and plants to help lure and keep them in your garden will be discussed.
