Humans are not equipped to have good vision in the dark. Some nocturnal animals don’t see any better than we, but they have a unique way of “seeing” in the dark. Bats are among those creatures. They have a remarkable ability to seek out their insect prey on the darkest of nights. How do they do this? Echolocation! Participants will learn all about this amazing adaptation through games and interactive experiments as they explore the world of bats with Lindsey. Limited enrollment.
