#fingerlakeshouse #thebesthourofyourday River Friends and Finger Lakes House sponsor Oct. 29 Bats and Beers presentation Just in time for Halloween, Chemung River Friends is offering a frightening, educational and fun presentation about bats, from 6 to 8 p.m., Oct. 29 at the Finger Lakes House, 389 W. Water St., Elmira. The Bats and Beers program includes videos of bats flying, walking, climbing and catching bugs.
The audience will learn why bats are one of the most beneficial and misunderstood creatures in our environment. River Friends Executive Director Jim Pfiffer will provide a PowerPoint presentation, photos, videos and the bat lore that has unfortunately portrayed bats as nightmarish evils. “One bat can eat 1,200 mosquitoes a night,” Pfiffer said. “Bats pollinate plants and provide excellent fertilizer (guano).

They are reclusive and don’t want to attack humans, bite us or fly into our hair. We hope to correct the myths and misconceptions about these amazing flying mammals and explain why we should be thankful for bats, not fear them.” The $10 entrance fee gets you a free Finger Lakes craft beer or glass of wine and Halloween-themed snacks and sweets. There will be a door prize drawing for a wooden bat house. Extra bat houses, made of recycled wood by the Chemung County Soil and Water Conservation District, will be available for $25.
