Spooky, Scary Animals:
Owls, Bats, & Snakes

From bats attacking human hair to snakes rolling down hills to owls being witches’ messengers, there are many myths & superstitions surrounding some of our most helpful native animals.  In October, we often see these animals associated with all things dark and spooky, marking the seasonal changes we see between summer and fall.  However, these animals have a lot to offer, and they contribute to our environment by eating millions of bugs and small rodents. This month, there are several events around Indiana where you can learn about and see our hooting, flying, and slithering friends.
