Park to Present Wildlife Jeopardy Program about Bats Oct. 12

By Susan Strawbridge Posted on October 10, 2016

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will offer a Wildlife Jeopardy program on Florida’s Bats in the Discovery Center inside the Wildlife Park on Saturday, October 15, 2016 from noon until 12:30 pm. This is one of two special programs scheduled in October as the park focuses on bats and the important role they play in the natural ecosystem. Bats are the only mammal that actually has the ability to fly.

The Wildlife Jeopardy program on Florida’s bats will be presented by Volunteer Barbara Cairns. She uses a 20-question format and invites visitors of all ages to test their knowledge. Regular park admission applies for entrance into the wildlife park.

Barbara works as a docent in the Children’s Education Center and as a retired school principal has taught in overseas Dept. of Defense Schools in Labrador, Germany and Panama. She is a published author with articles and stories in books, magazines and newspapers. Her books include Cracker Cow: a Narrative of Florida History, Gatsby’s Adventures series, The Not So Secret Life of Nimh, A Dumbo Rat and her latest book, Nettie’s Dream. For more information on this program, please call Susan at (352) 628-5445, ext. 1002.
