Creatures of the night descended on the quaint little community of Pleasant Ridge Monday evening, enchanting dozens of children and parents.

The visit was part of the Cranbrook Traveling Bats program which gives kids and adults an up close look at the nocturnal flying creatures. The presentation was sponsored by the Pleasant Ridge Garden Club

The Organization for Bat Conservation’s Bat Zone at the Cranbrook Institute works diligently royal_servicesto save bats and promote a welcoming environment for bats in suburban neighborhoods. Their traveling programs are a fun way to teach people about the importance of bats as pollinators, insect eaters and forest regenerators. Their exhibit at Cranbrook and their traveling show help fund conservation efforts.
