I volunteered today inside the Convention Center (an engineering wonder that hovers over the top of Interstate-5) at Seattle's Home & Garden show. Luckily, my efforts were fun as I promoted native bats from inside the Bats Northwest booth.
While there, I talked to ridiculous amounts of people from all over Washington and Oregon and felt like Vanna White, pointing to the different styles of bat houses and repeatedly hugged the one that local bats favor most (the "rocket-box" style). I felt incredibly encouraged by all the enthusiasm -- gardeners seem to LOVE bats -- but after four hours I realized I was beginning to feel like a broken record; repeating the same anatomical and habitat information over so many times! (I felt very happy to end my shift.)
The following photos are just quick shots that I snapped around the inside of the Home & Garden show. There were so many incredibly beautiful floral and nature displays there -- a camera just cannot do the scenes justice.
