Bats are awesome, and your backyard or garden is probably a great habitat for them! A single brown bat can eat up to 1200 insects in an hour, helping reduce garden pests and mosquitoes. Participants will build their very own bat house to take home, learn about ideal placement around the home or in the garden, and discuss what we can do to create ideal habitat for this beneficial, threatened, and misunderstood friend. No building experience is necessary for this family friendly workshop.
