Bat Box Workbee

Did you know… there are about 9 species of bats that call Michigan home? White Nose Syndrome (WNS) on this sensitive species of mammal has had an impact. More than 1,300 species of bats make up a quarter of the mammal population on the earth. In an effort to assist this animal with alternative roosting for summer months, our Ecology Club designed two-chambered bat houses and four-chambered bat nurseries which need installing.

Location: Meet at the Waldeck Island Nature Preserve at Stone Ledge Lake. Go to our website for directions. Teams will leave from the parking lot to erect poles with bat boxes at our other preserves.

Bring work gloves and a desire to enhance our local wildlife diversity with a fun project!
