9th Annual BATFEST Scheduled at Lincoln Caverns
This Valentines Day, Pennsylvania’s Lincoln Caverns will once again be holding its annual BATFEST.
Running from 10:00 am until 3:30 pm on February 14th 2015, this ninth annual family event features a day full of activities, cavern tours, and a pizza lunch.
As in previous years, attendees will have the opportunity to take part in the building of a bat house which will be awarded to a lucky visitor through a random drawing at the end of the day.
Lincoln Caverns is also happy to announce the return of Robyn Graboski, of Centre Wildlife Care. Ms. Graoboski is a popular guest at Lincoln Caverns’ events, as well as many other regional events. She rehabilitates a variety of Pennsylvania animals, including bats. Betsy, one of Centre Wildlife Care’s big brown bats, will be a special guest, offering Batfest participants an up close and personal encounter with a furry friend.
The program will include information about Pennsylvania’s bats, as well as an update on White-nose Syndrome, the devastating disease that has already caused the death of over six million bats in the Eastern North America. To help out, a portion of each purchase during Batfest will be donated to WNS research.
Advance tickets are required for Batfest and space is limited.
