Kristen Lear is a bat conservationist and environmental educator. She got her start in bat conservation at age 12, when she built and installed bat houses for her Girl Scout Silver Award project. Since then, she has traveled the world, including the US, Australia, and Mexico, to learn how to protect endangered bats and to share her passion with the public. In this session, Kristen will provide a glimpse into the world of bats, sharing some specialized research equipment and providing hands-on tips for how students can build their own bat houses and contribute to bat conservation in their own backyards.
