Have you ever seen a bat up close?

Have you ever seen one of those flying creatures up close?  If you’re not too scared, this Saturday will be your chance!

Onondaga Cave State Park is hosting Missouri’s first Bat Festival on April 21st.  Read more below from The Rolla Daily News:

Rob Mies is coming to Missouri’s first ever Bat Festival on Saturday, April 21, at Onondaga Cave State Park. And he’s bringing a few of his furry friends.

Mies is the director and founder of the Organization for Bat Conservation, the largest grass-roots bat conservation program in the United States, with headquarters at the Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. The organization presents some 1,500 live shows a year to educate people about one of the world’s most unique, and misunderstood, animals.

Mies, pronounced “my-ess,” has become somewhat of a celebrity; his work has been featured in television documentaries and he has made appearances on shows hosted by Ellen Degeneres, Conan O’Brien and Regis and Kelly. Mies does the talking, but his friends are the stars.
