Bat Week Celebration Trunk

What is the Bat Week Celebration Trunk?

The Bat Week Celebration Trunk was developed in partnership with Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks to help libraries celebrate Bat Week, an international, annual celebration designed to raise awareness about the need for bat conservation. The trunk contains activities to help libraries educate Montanans on how cool bats are, and the important role that they play in our environment and ecosystem.

Special thanks to Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks for their help in providing and developing many of the materials used in this program!
