Come find out what happens outside while we are sleeping! Rye Driftwood Garden Club presents Hilary Chapman from New Hampshire Audubon who will explore the nocturnal lives of owls and bats. The program starts at 10 am, Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at the Rye Congregational Church, 580 Washington Road, Rye NH.
During her multimedia presentation, Chapman will discuss how these animals have unique ways of catching prey and how each is beneficial to the natural world. In addition, her talk reviews bat biology and explores common myths vs. the facts about bats. A highlight of the presentation will be the live owl Chapman will bring with her for a close-up look at one of these magnificent, solitary birds of prey. She will also show related materials such as owl mounts, bat mounts, feathers and skulls.
