Sponsor a Bat Program


Please help Barrier Island Parks Society in our mission to inspire the exploration and preservation of our natural and historic treasures by sponsoring fascinating educational programs including the Secret World of Bats!

Secret World of Bats written and presented by The Bat Lady, Shari Blissett Clark of The Bat Conservancy.


In this educational program we'll learn that bats are fascinating mammals that play important roles in habitat diversity and health! Although many people are afraid of them because of superstition, folklore, and misinformation, this program exposes the secret world of bats and replaces the myths with facts about the "super-powers" that bats possess. We'll explore the places that bats live, what they eat, and why bats are so important to people! We'll discuss easy ways that anyone can help bats survive and thrive in yards and neighborhoods! We'll experience Florida native bats and Q & A with The Bat Lady after the program!
