Bats: Myth & Reality: This PowerPoint program uses high resolution photography and research results to debunk the folklore, myths, and misconceptions that have plagued bats for centuries. Unfounded fears, often fueled by grossly over-stated disease risk and ignorance, are the major contributors to the dramatic declines in bat populations world-wide. This program discusses species diversity, environmental and economic benefits of bats, and disease risk. The program runs approximately 45 minutes and is followed by a question and answer period. Live Florida bats will be displayed.

No clowning around…Ronald McDonald utilized his clowning skills such as balancing, juggling, magic, puppetry and more to cover important topics facing today’s youth — topics such as anti-bullying, leadership, friendship, and the characteristics it takes to be a Super Hero. Our audience enjoyed a high-octane, highly-interactive show!
