SCHOOL TOURS

Lubee Bat Conservancy is a great Field Trip destination for Schools, Summer Camps, and Scouting groups! Come see our Bats up close and play some  Batty games. We get pretty busy with Tour requests (especially in the Spring and Fall months) as some schools book 3-4 months in advance for these time frames. Schedule your field trip early! We also have plenty of space to have lunch at picnic tables under large trees.

OUTREACHES at SCHOOLS

Yes, we can bring the Batty fun to you! Our Outreach Program consists of an age appropriate PowerPoint presentation focused on bat fun facts, followed by a showing of a live bat(s). For the safety of our bats, we do not bring them out of their enclosures; however, they are easily visible to everyone in attendance. We require a building with a projector screen, electricity, and tables to set up the bat enclosure(s).
