Part three of the blog post series on bats is coming soon, but in the meantime, swing by Gilsland Farm Audubon Center to visit our Nature Store—this month it’s the only place you can pick up a copy of our new collaboration with Islandport Press, “A Little Brown Bat Story.” It’s great for Halloween, and while you are here, take a stroll on the brand new story walk—a gorgeous trail for kids and adults that features the story of our little brown bat friends.
