This October, Trails Regional Library was lucky to host Knob Noster State Park Naturalist Chris Edmondson as a guest presenter for our virtual programming. Here’s a recap of the Batty About Bats virtual program and more resources to check out!
I’m Chris, the park naturalist at Knob Noster State Park in Knob Noster, Missouri. One of my favorite parts of my job is sharing things that I love about science and nature. In this virtual program, Batty about Bats, we discuss some of our Missouri bat adaptations, what bats do, and how we can help bats.
