APRIL 17—National Car Care Month, Bat Appreciation Day

To a small child, spending time at a car wash is almost as entertaining as going to an amusement park. He or she will be fascinated watching the bustle of activity behind the big glass window: suds sloshing, nozzles spraying, giant mops scrubbing.

So head out to clean the family car, and get a show for free (well, almost!). And if the weather's warm, wash the car together and see who gets the wettest.

Bats are essential to the health of our natural world. They help control pests and are vital pollinators and seed-dispersers for countless plants.

There are more than 1,200 species of bats – about one-fifth of all mammal species. They range from the world's smallest mammal, the tiny bumblebee bat that weighs less than a penny to giant flying foxes with six-foot wingspans. Except for the most extreme desert and polar regions, bats have lived in almost every habitat on Earth since the age of the dinosaurs. To learn more about bats, visit
