Students will gain an understanding of specific ways bats are essential to our ecosystem. This includes learning about plants which rely on bats for seed dispersal, pollination, and pest control.

I am the Director of Education at Bat World Sanctuary, and teaching the community about our winged friends is my absolute passion. At the sanctuary, I am a bat rehabilitator and caretaker, meaning I get to have the great pleasure (and privilege) of working with these amazing animals directly.

45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
