Celebrate Bat Week 2019!

Become a Bat Hero by building your very own bat box. A bat box is a great way to enhance habitat for bats in your backyard and is designed to provide bats with a warm, dry safe summer roost site.

Each work station will take home a single bat box. This is a hands-on workshop. A presentation about our bats and the importance of bat boxes will be provided during the lunch break.

Funding for this workshop is provided by: Habitat Stewardship Program, Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, and Forest Enhancement Society.
