Join us in two weeks for a live electronic field trip on September 18 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time live from Bracken Bat Cave, which is the summer home of the world’s largest bat colony. The emergence of these millions of bats, as they spiral out of the cave at dusk for their nightly insect hunt, is an unforgettable sight.
The program will be webcast live from:
-- 7 – 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time
-- 6 – 7:30 p.m. Central Time
-- 5 – 6:30 p.m. Mountain Time
-- 4 – 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time
-- 3 – 4:30 p.m. Alaska Time
