Flights for Bats!
October 24, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 31, 2019 @ 11:30 pm
Please support this great Halloween themed event in Minnesota!
As you know, our local forest bat population is being decimated by an imported fungal disease called White Nose Syndrome. Bats are extremely important predators of insect pests that attack our forests!
These “Forest to Tap” craft breweries located in Minnesota’s north woods are stepping up to help save our forest bats. During International Bat Week October 24 – 31, a portion of the proceeds from each flight of beer sold will be donated to the Bat Conservation International, White Nose Syndrome research fund!
“Flights for Bats” is intended to raise awareness on this critical issue; and hopefully raise some money as well!
Guild member Mark Jacobs says it has been a great experience working on the “Forest to Tap” program with these community focused craft breweries in the Mississippi Headwaters. We encourage you to support them and this cause during Bat Week…
If you’re able to visit one of these fine establishments, ask for a flight for bats and/or tell your server that you appreciate their efforts for forest bats!
If you can’t visit please consider sending them a note or e-mail, as it’s important to let them know that those of us who care about the flora and fauna of our forests appreciate their efforts!
