Halloween on St. Croix

 

Going Batty (Postponed)

Typically, St. Croix Environmental Association (SEA) offers this fun family event where you can learn about bats, see the bats emerge from the Barren Spot Bat Tower, and learn how to help these invaluable pollinators and mosquito eaters. Due to Hurricane Maria, this is event is postponed for 2017. PLEASE NOTE:  Bats throughout the territory are struggling from lack of food due to Hurricanes Irma and Maria wiping out most of the fruit growing on our plants and trees. SEA wants you to know that you can help these fruit eating bats by hanging fruits like bananas, papayas, mangoes or whatever you can find. Make sure you hang the fruit out of reach of cats and mongoose so they can’t reach the bats! Bats are a key component to forest restoration.
