With Joe D’Angeli

Sunday, November 17th at 2 PM

Throughout the world, bats have been misunderstood and persecuted, causing a serious decline in the bat population. The program "BATS, BATS, BATS!" was established to bring this matter to the public's attention. Find out why bats are now being protected because of their vital role in virtually every environment on earth, and learn, for example, about their importance in insect maintenance and rainforest regeneration. 

Suggested donation of $5 per person for non-members and $3 per person for members. Light refreshments will be served.


Spend Some Time in the Woods - Join Our Happy Band of Deer Fence Monitors

Our challenge now is to monitor the deer exclosure fencing to make sure there are no breaks where deer can come in. We are building a solid team of volunteers to support this effort - please consider joining us. Training provided. Any time you could give would be very welcome!  If you have a friend or neighbor you'd like to team with (CNC member or not), sign both up on our volunteer website.  If you would like to be involved in this project please click here and fill out our volunteer form at the bottom.
