In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to build successful bat boxes, also discover unusual facts about the bats themselves. Completed bat boxes will be placed at the Woodman Point Regional Park. They will be monitored and studied for activity. Imagine building a box knowing that the little bats will love you for having giving them a beautiful home.
By returning to this web site we will keep you informed of when the bats come, take photos and display a map of the bat boxes so you can go and visit them.
