Learn about bats and moths at Foothills Family Day Feb 11

Foothills family day is a free, family-orientated program offered throughout the year on the second Saturday of every month from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center, 3188 Sunset Peak Road.  

All ages welcome!

The bats and moths may still be sleeping but we aren’t! Come listen to Dr. Jesse Barber of Boise State University talk about the complicated predator-prey interactions between bats and moths! Learn about bats’ echolocation abilities and what some moths around the world are doing to avoid being eaten by bats.  There will be also crafts and activities to celebrate these strange winged creatures and their unusual adaptions. 

The Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center is operated by Boise Parks and Recreation. To get there, take 8th Street to Hulls Gulch Reserve in North Boise. Watch for signs 1/3 mile past the end of the pavement.
