It's All About the Bats

Bats! Scary, bloodsuckers that get stuck in people’s hair? Or gentle, helpful, misunderstood animals?   Join Naturalist Betty Naughton for a fascinating indoor program about bats and how they live. Why do bats fly the way they do? Will they fly into my hair? Are they dangerous? You’ll find out that there are many untrue myths about bats. You’ll learn why some of us love bats, and maybe you will too after you understand them better and know how they benefit us. This is a presentation style program. Live bats will not be attending.

OSMP walking events related to the exhibit Art Inspired by the Land will begin or end at the Main Boulder Public Library. Please call Juanita Echeverri, OSMP, at 303-413-7616 to reserve a seat as space is limited. You’ll be notified of the starting location upon registration. Please wear clothing and footwear suitable for walking outdoors.

Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) presents Art Inspired by the Land, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Boulder residents’ passage of America’s first dedicated open space sales tax, which has helped the city to acquire and protect more than 45,000 acres of open space.  An immersive art installation designed by Studio TJOA will highlight artworks submitted by community members. Visit the Boulder Public Library Canyon Gallery August 5 - September 10 to traverse the canyon installation and appreciate artwork inspired by the land around Boulder.
