You've seen them in the movies and on TV, but have you seen them in Oakland? Like humans, bats are able to thrive in nearly every kind of extreme environment including our own. Join urban bat enthusiast Jill Miller for a two-part bat talk and walk in which we explore what our nocturnal neighbors have to teach us about living a balanced life in the hectic city.

The slideshow at Dimond Library will introduce the fascinating bats of the Sausal Creek Watershed and the world. Bat-pollinated snacks will be provided! (No tequila, sorry.)

The ¼ mile Bridgeview Trail walk will offer a chance to observe some of our amazing flying friends as they forage for insects on the wing.

Inclement weather cancels the walk.
