Every time you visit Lubee Bat Conservancy YOU are helping save species!

SCHOOL FIELD TRIP TOURS

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR VISIT:

 

Lubee houses over 200+ bats representing 11 species, including the Malayan Flying Fox which can attain a wingspan of 6'!  The majority of our bats are frugivorous, and students will have an opportunity to observe the bats up close, as the bats interact with each other, and numerous  enrichment foods & toys.

Lubee Bat Conservancy offers a truly unique outdoor educational experience for students to learn about and view some of the largest and most endangered species of bats in the world up close. Our educational program is offered to grades Pre-K through 12th and College levels.

 

Students will be engaged with an interactive presentation* aligned with FL State Standards. The guided field trip will last up to 1.5 hours (depending on your time frame) and will consist of a PPT presentation, education animal encounter, followed by a visit to view our bats up close! If your schedule allows, students and chaperones will have the opportunity to explore property and discover more about the natural world.

If your schedule allows for some free time to explore, discover activities and Nature Play areas throughout property. 
All Field Trips can be modified to fit your class’s specific needs. 

Facilities and restrooms are handicapped accessible.
