Local bat expert Leslie Sturges visited Barrett with two live bats!The third graders learned many fascinating facts about bats and how important bats are to plants and animals, including people. We also learned about the devastation of white-nose syndrome on the bat population here in Virginia. http://whitenosesyndrome.org/about-white-nose-syndrome.
