Posted By on Mon, Jun 10, 2019 at 1:30 AM

Make it Mondays! Mondays are a good a day as any to make something, right? This summer, head over to the Children’s Museum, where admission is just $3 per person every Monday through to Labor Day. They’ll also have special guests each day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This week, a visit from the Pima County Department of Natural Resources/Parks and Rec, who will be talking all about bats! Here are some bat facts to get you in the mood: Bats can eat their own body weight or more in insects each night. Apparently, some species can fly faster than 100 miles per hour! And, for those non-property owning, brunch-loving millennials: more than 300 species of fruit depend on bats for pollination, including bananas, agave and avocados. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, June 10. Children’s Museum Tucson 200 S. Sixth Ave. $3. Details here.
