All Events

Join Biologist/Ranger Eric Powers as he de-mystifies the bat species. This natural predator of disease-carrying mosquitoes is often misunderstood and sometimes feared. We’ll learn why bats are great neighbors, and participants will build a bat box to take home.

All equipment and materials will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own drills. One kit per admission fee, so preregistration is requested.

Admission includes one Bat Box kit:
Members: $35 per car
Non-Members: $45 per car

Additional kits can be purchased for $25 per kit. Please note your request when you register.

Register online or at the Gatehouse; includes parking.
