Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 7th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week. The bats at Save Lucy were wondering where all the excitement and parties went. They already miss the holidays and are looking forward to Valentine’s Day.

It has been sooooooooooo cold here! I saw on the news that it has been cold all over the country. Some places in the country are even colder than Mars! And that’s cold! They canceled school because it was too cold for the buses to start. The bats enjoyed their snow days! Well, the bats at Save Lucy did. The bats outside were too cold! This is the time of year that many bats hibernate in caves. I’m worried about them and I really hope they all make it through the winter without getting White Nose Syndrome! Maybe this will be the year that scientists find a cure.

Next week…It’s time for Bat Scout Cookies! There’s a new flavor!An illustration of a bat eating a cookie
