International Bat Week is just around the corner, and the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument team will celebrate by showcasing the 15 different bat species that call Montana home.
People can stop by the Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center in Fort Benton Oct. 25-29, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., to learn about these special animals, take part in crafts and activities, and attend a short program about bats.
Bats play a unique role in our environment by controlling insect populations that may otherwise harm homes, agriculture and forests.
