LET'S MAKE BAT BOXES FOR BATS

LET'S MAKE BAT BOXES FOR BATS

This workshop will teach how to make bat boxes – wooden houses for bats, that attendees will be able to take home and put up near where they live. Bat boxes are replacement shelters for bats that would otherwise choose natural homes such as caves, holes in trees or walls, and often find a home in parts of manmade buildings. Putting up bat boxes near your home offers these mysterious and often persecuted species additional options for daytime shelter.

The workshop, which takes place in and outside the Point.For you info centre from 5pm to 7pm on Wednesday 20 July is led by biologists from the Slovenian Association for Bat Research and Conservation. You can find out many interesting things about these unusual nocturnal creatures. The workshop is suitable for children aged 8 and over, while younger children can make bat boxes with the help of their parents. (photo: Simon Zidar)
