This unique event will provide a rare opportunity for the general public and wildlife lovers to visit a working research center and to see some of the largest bats in the world face-to-face. This is the only day of the year when the center is open to the public.
The festival will be held on the grounds of the conservancy, a 110-acre ranch, located at 1309 N.W. 192nd Avenue in Gainesville, FL. This year’s event will provide a wide range of activities for the entire family, including bouncy huts, fun crafts, a prize raffle, live music, and bat-themed merchandise for sale. Local food vendors will also be featured.
Proceeds from the festival will be used to fund education and awareness programs for schools, libraries, scouting troops, and wildlife and conservation groups to promote awareness about the benefits bats provide.
