There is a pair of turkey vultures that nests in an old abandoned barn every year, which allowed me to get quite close to these two. They made an angry noise that sounded like a coffee maker. Still cute though!
The Bat Zone will be CLOSED Friday, September 22nd and Saturday, September 23rd for the Great Lakes Bat Festival! We will be OPEN for regular Bat Zone Tour hours on Sunday, September 24th! We hope to see you at both the Great Lakes Bat Festival and the Bat Zone for tours!
Thank you SO much to all of those who came out to the BIGGEST Bat Festival that we have ever had this past weekend! We had over 4,000 people in attendance! An additional thank you to our partners, sponsors, volunteers and Michigan Science Center, this day wouldn’t have been possible without you all! We hope that next year will be even bigger! Thank you, everyone, from the bottom of our hearts!
There were two baby raccoons outside my school when I got out of class tonight. They were running around the parking garage. Didn’t like when I walked up to them, they split up to different corners and looked at me menacingly/afraidly.
They were cute tho. Didn’t see momma anywhere around, so I wonder if they’re naughty children or unfortunate orphans.
