Bat House Building Workshop! - SOLD OUT
Saturday, October 11, 2014
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
$25.00 per family/bat house
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 19 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. 


SOLD OUT - Registration is now closed.

Registration required by September 19, 2014.
