You're invited to this special event hosted by the EcoHealth Alliance Young Professionals Council; as we lead up to Halloween 2013, come and celebrate with us at 'What’s Brewing with Bats?'
Doors open at 7:30pm, where guests will have access to unlimited beer provided by Brooklyn Brewery. At 8pm, Dr. Kevin Olival from EcoHealth Alliance will be presenting on EcoHealth Alliance's global projects on bat conservation and health: why are bats so important to ecosystems? How does human interference with the environment destroy their habitat? And, more importantly, what threats to our health are posited by our encroachment into bat, and other wildlife habitat?
Join Dr. Olival, and the EcoHealth Alliance Young Professionals Council for an informative and fun evening of networking and connecting with other NYC young professionals with a passion for the environment and sustainability.
Tickets are $20 each for unlimited beer provided by Brooklyn Brewery!
