Man and boy holding bat boxes.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 25 to secure a bat house kit. Attendance will be limited. This is a non-refundable fee to cover the cost of materials. Additional bat houses must be ordered at time of registration. Zoo admission is separate and not required to attend.

Register online or call 407.323.4450 ext. 123 or email education@centralfloridazoo.org for more information.
