Bats can consume an enormous amount of mosquitoes and other crop damaging insects such as cutworms and moths.  Bats are the only mammal that can truly fly! More than half of the bat species in the United States are in severe decline or listed as endangered. In addition to loss of habitat, one of the biggest threats comes from white nose syndrome, a disease that has decimated bats in the U.S. and Canada.

Learn more interesting facts plus build a house for up to 100 bats. Each house costs ($35.00). They make nice gifts also. On your registration form, please indicate the number of houses you wish to buy and add the cost to your registration fee. Please bring your own cordless drill if possible. We only have a limited supply of drills. Dead line to order materials: April 22nd.

Or, you may just simply listen to the discussion and observe the building of the houses.

Class limit: 15.
