Victor Alfieri will present information about the bat conservation project he is heading up at the Wayne Public Library on Saturday.
Alfieri, a sustainability advocate, wants to help the local bat population survive. He believes bats are important in eliminating the need to spray pesticides.
“As we start losing bats, in turn, we’re going to have more insects. Unless we start taking care of these beautiful creatures, we’re going to have to start spraying even more," Alfieri previously said.
Alfieri wants to install bat houses at the North end of Packanack Lake and at Kilroy Field. He also wants to build observation towers to study the animals.
The meeting will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
