The North American Society for Bat Research (NASBR) meets annually throughout North America. Bat research 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, October 15, the last day of the meeting.
This year the NASBR meeting is being held in San Antonio and we are inviting local teachers to attend this unique opportunity to learn about Texas 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.
Here is the workshop schedule and location of the event. Please note that there is no free parking at the hotel. There are several public parking lots in the area.
