**NEWS FLASH**  
GRAND OPENING OF THE NEW BAT CAVE!

Hello bat friends and family!

As many of you know, we have spent the last eight years in a wonderful little location in Ridgefield Park. As many of you also know, we had been looking for a larger location for quite some time. Well good news! We have finally found our new home!  We have moved to Garfield, New Jersey to a much larger and better location. The town and the people of Garfield have been wonderful, and we look forward to continuing our important work- educating the public on the importance of bats in every environment that they inhabit, on almost every continent on Earth!  
Times have been tough for bats  lately, as they continue to face insurmountable obstacles including the devastating "white nose syndrome" disease and loss of habitats and poaching worldwide. We hope that  you will continue to support our endeavors and our center.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone soon,  and we are looking forward to everyone seeing our fantastic new home!

Very sincerely yours,
"New Jersey's Bat-Man"
