EarthShare of Texas 25th Anniversary
Round Table Discussions Presents:
Bats, Birds and Barbecue
A Dinner Discussion of Wildlife and Habitat Conservation Beneath a Beautiful Bat-Filled Sky

The second event of our anniversary series is Bats, Birds and Barbecue: A Dinner Discussion of Wildlife and Habitat Conservation Beneath a Beautiful Bat-Filled Sky. Did you know that the Mexican free-tailed bats play a hand in making your after-work margarita? Or that raptors don’t have eyeballs? Wildlife is fascinating, inspirational and integral to our survival. As habitats become threatened by pesticides, oil/chemical spills and general pollution, conservation efforts are urgent. Join us at Bracken Cave where we will watch the awesome evening emergence of the world’s largest bat colony and meet some raptors up close and personally. We will talk about what is being done to conserve wildlife habitats and what yet needs to be done. Enjoy live music, a barbecue feast prepared by Rosemary’s Catering and wine from Ambiente all beneath a magical bat-filled sky.

Presenting Wildlife Experts Are:

  • Fran Hutchins, Bat Conservation International
  • Erich Neupert, Blackland Prairie Raptor Center
  • Karen Bishop, National Wildlife Federation, South Central Regional Center
