Bats! With Gerri Griswold
Come to Goodwin and meet the famous Bat Lady of Connecticut, Gerri Griswold. She’ll be bringing a grumpy Brown Bat with her as she presents about bats and associated topics.
Gerri Griswold is Director of Administration and Development at The White Memorial Conservation Center in Litchfield, Connecticut. She has handled bats for twenty-four years as a wildlife rehabilitator and educator and is licensed by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the United States Department of Agriculture to keep and exhibit non releasable bats and more recently, Porcupines for education. Over the years Griswold and her bats have delivered hundreds of programs to libraries, classrooms, Scout troops and organizations like the National Park Service and the Yale Peabody Museum . They have appeared on the cover of The Weekly Reader and produced a segment about bats for The Late Show with David Letterman.
