6/24 9a: This episode of The Children’s Hour had live bats in the studio to help us learn more about these incredible flying mammals that live in our backyard. Plus we found out how kids can get a scholarship to summer music camp. With great music, a family events calendar, the KUNM Kids Birthday Club and so much more.
During the summer months, southern New Mexico hosts one of the largest bat populations in North America. The Jornada Bat Caves, just west of White Sands Missile Range, are now becoming more accessible to the public.
