"Get up-close and personal with bats from around the world! Join Rob Mies, director of the Organization for Bat Conservation, for a live bat presentation. Mies has appeared on 'The Tonight Show,' 'The Today Show,' 'Late Night with Conan O’Brien,' and 'Martha Stewart,' among others, and is a co-author of the book Stokes Beginners Guide to Bats. His research includes work with the endangered Indiana bat of the United States, endangered Rodrigues fruit bat of the Indian Ocean, and the threatened spectacled flying fox bat of Australia." ~AMNH

This weekend, visit The American Museum of Natural History for a live bat encounter!! While this presentation is geared towards kids, it is fact-filled, entertaining and an excellent opportunity for a close-up look at a number of different bat species. It is recommended that you order your tickets in advance, and arrive early to be sure to get a good seat.

Also, as indicated in the video below, if you can't make it to the AMNH show on October 1st, Rob and his bats will be at the New York Botanical Garden the following day. ^V^
