Find what's wild about Texas right in your back yard. Photo from TPWD's "Growing Up Wild" curriculum.

Celebrate Round Rock’s wild side as we get to know and appreciate the bats and other urban critters that share our home.

Round Rock Public Library's Youth Services Department is partnering with Texas Parks and Wildlife to explore the hidden lives of urban animals--and particularly our friendly neighborhood bats.

During the hour-long come-and-go program, visitors can enjoy:

  • Sneaky snacks like a backyard opossum might find
  • A short film based on Brian Lies' Bats in the Library
  • Books about animals all around us, including Ezra Jack Keats’ Over in the Meadow
  • A bat and urban animal exhibit from Texas Parks and Wildlife—see a real Bat Detector!
  • Bat, frog and snake crafts--build you own frog call!
  • Bat and backyard critter games and experiences

This free event is for ages 5 and up. The fun begins at 3:30 pm Monday, April 23, in the library's Room C.

For more information, please contact Jane Dance, (512) 218-7012.
