Bats will be the topic for the fourth Cakes at the Lake program of the year Saturday, Aug. 12, at Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary near Sarona. Breakfast will be from 8 to 9:45 a.m. and followed by the program at 10 a.m.
Cakes at the Lake is an all-you-care-to-eat pancake breakfast featuring buttermilk and specialty pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and beverages. The specialty pancake will be bacon pancakes with bits of bacon crumbles. The cost for breakfast is $7 for adults, $3 for children ages 5 to 12 and free for children under 4.
The free environmental program, sponsored by the Long Lake Preservation Association, will feature presenter Brian Herringa of the U.S. Forest Service. Attendees will learn about the unique characteristics of bats, which are often maligned but play an integral part in the northern Wisconsin habitat. The program will also highlight how people can help Wisconsin’s bat population and how bats can be great neighbors.
The last Cakes at the Lake this year will be Saturday, Sept. 9, with Mike Brown from the Chippewa Valley Astronomical Society talking about astronomy. The specialty pancake will be apple cider pancakes.
