If you've ever spent a summer evening next to the Rideau Canal, odds are you've looked up and seen a bat silhouetted against the sky as it begins its nightly hunt. These secretive and often misunderstood creatures are essential part of Ontario's ecosystem, but how much do you really know about them? This exciting exhibit on loan from the Royal Ontario Museum introduces visitors to the bats that patrol Ontario's night sky, their habits and unique physiology, as well as explaining the role they play in Ontario's ecosystem. Come out and learn more about these fascinating creatures!
