Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife Monthly Meeting
Bat expert Shari Bissett-Clark will be the featured speaker for CCFW's December monthly meeting. Her program will focus upon bat myths and realities as well as the relationship between bats and gardens. Shari is a long-time member of Bat Conservation International, the Florida Bat Conservancy, the Florida Native Plant Society, and Xerces Society, and she is a Master Gardener and Florida Master Naturalist Program instructor. Currently Shari serves as the president of the Florida Bat Conservancy. Shari’s education includes wildlife and invertebrate biology and she has been active in both the private and public conservation sectors for over 40 years. In 2009 Shari formed Bat Belfrys, a privately funded conservation organization dedicated to conserving Florida’s bats primarily through public education and the use of artificial roosts. All proceeds for this work support the conservation initiatives of the Florida Bat Conservancy.
