Bat Watch

Don’t you know that bats are cool?  They don’t bite, unless you bite first; they won’t give you rabies and they won’t fly in your hair.  They do hang out around Coral Gables’ own Granada Golf Course and on Friday, November 13, you may be lucky enough to see several at the Museum’s BAT WATCH event.  GO BATTY!!!
