Bat Conservation Project

Building Bat Boxes

Before spring break, the NPSS Biology 11 classes constructed 40 bat houses (photos attached) and Richard Koechl’s class will be building 10 more.  This is a project in partnership with the Forest Land and Natural Resources Operations (Ministry of the Environment), Ducks Unlimited, and the Charlie Lake Conservation Society.  The boxes the classes have created will be distributed to members of the community to provide a habitat for the bats while collecting data on the bats for the Ministry.  This is a unique and exciting opportunity for the students. The group will be looking for community volunteers shortly to take the responsibility as bat box caretakers.
