The North American Society for Bat Research (NASBR) meets annually throughout North America. Bat biologists attend the NASBR meeting to share their research data and information with colleagues throughout North America and beyond. NASBR taps into this body of expertise as well as local bat conservation professionals to organize an annual teachers’ workshop on Saturday, the last day of the meeting.
The teacher workshop is an event created in 1995 to provide educators in the city where the Society meets with information and activities about bats that can be shared with students of all ages. Local teachers are invited to attend this unique opportunity to learn about local bats and how to integrate topics on bat biology, ecology, conservation and public health into the classroom curriculum. The teachers’ workshop will be limited to the first 50 teachers who sign up. The $25 registration fee must be paid at the time of registration. The fee covers refreshments and a packet of classroom materials about bats.
