Bat House Building Workshop

October 14, 2017
1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m. or 3:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
$25 per family/bat house
Registration is required by September 22, 2017. 

Come assemble your very own bat house at this fun family workshop! Bats are underrated. Besides being the only mammal that flies, most North American bats are nocturnal insectivores, which means they feed on night-flying insects – especially mosquitoes. Encouraging bats to nest near your house is a natural way to keep your yard bug-free. Supplies will be provided. You only need to bring a hammer. 

Register online or call 407.323.4450 ext. 123 and make reservations by September 23 to secure a bat house kit. Attendance will be limited. This is a non-refundable fee to cover the cost of materials. Workshop fee does not include park admission. Additional bat houses are $15 each and must be ordered at time of registration.

Due to popular demand we will be offering two Bat House Building Workshops this year. Be sure to choose the time you prefer. 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
