In defense of bats! — 23/10/12

flat illustrations of bats flying over title text

Bats — they’re a great Halloween decoration. But real-world bats are already focused on winter — whether it’s migrating south or snuggling up in a cave or barn. And New Hampshire’s bats are still dealing with their own scary situation in the form of white-nose syndrome. In this week’s cover, we look at the state of local bats and what people can do to lend a hand (wing?) to these mammalian mosquito eaters.

Also on the cover The curtain rises on Kinky Boots at the Palace Theatre (page 14). Pick your own pumpkin — for decoration or pie (page 21). Goffstown celebrates the season with its annual Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off and Regatta (page 19).
