Bat House Building Workshop

Saturday March 10, 2018

Time: 9:00 AM
Location: The Conservancy Headquarters
Fee: $65.00/bat house
Guides: Shealyn Marino, Wilkes University & Ryan Beltz, PWC Executive Director

Bats are in trouble. Due to the White-nose syndrome (WNS) and habitat destruction, our friends of the night are in need of some help. Come out to the Conservancy to learn more about our local bats and their conservation needs from Shealyn Marino, Research Assistant in Biology at Wilkes University. Then work with us to build your very own bat house. 

Bat houses provide vital habitat for our brown bats who help keep the mosquito population in check. This workshop will provide you with your own personal bat house to install in your backyard. We provide the materials... you make the difference!

This is a great workshop for bat enthusiasts and for hands-on family fun! Bring yourself. Bring a friend. Bring your family!
