Next meeting:

Come and learn all about BATS –their natural history, habits and why they are so important to our Ecosystems.                             

Prof. Paul Faure, McMaster University Bat Lab and his associates, will talk about bats and let us have a close-up look (with no touching!).

We’re back to in-person meetings!  Join us!  Guests are welcome!
