Who are masters of echolocation and the only mammals that can legitimately fly? BATS!

On Saturday September 16th, Friends of China Camp is pleased to welcome special guest appearances of LIVE California native bats to our monthly Village Talk! Our presenter Corky Quirk of NorCal Bats will reveal the hidden lives and features of these specialized nocturnal creatures. Discover the diversity of native bat species in your local neighborhood, and how these delicate aerial beings communicate and navigate under the cover of darkness. You will also learn fascinating details about their physiology, diet and life cycle.

Are all bats in cahoots with Dracula? Do they want to “suck your blood”? This presentation will dispel these and other harmful beliefs that can and have lead to the unnecessary destruction of colonies and roosts. These shy creatures are actually of great importance to humans and ecological systems. Did you know that these voracious nocturnal insect consumers save the global agriculture industry billions of dollars in pest management costs every year?

NorCal bats is a Sacramento based non-profit dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of bats throughout Northern California. They also provide outreach and education in defense of these remarkable creatures.
Corky Quirk has been the founder and executive director of NorCal bats for over 12 years. She has a degree in natural resources from Humboldt State University and she currently resides in Yolo County.
