‘Build a Bat House,’ visit by bat organization at Marguerite deAngeli

LAPEER — The Marguerite deAngeli Library in Lapeer will present two bat programs in July.

On Saturday, July 29 at 10 a.m. participants will build and decorate a bat house to take home. All materials, instruction and tools will be provided. This program is open to teens and adults; registration is required due to a limited amount of materials. Call 810 664-6971 to register.

After the bat houses are completed, a member of the Organization for Bat Conservation will be present at noon so that you can meet bats from across the world and learn why these wonderful animals are so important to ecosystems, and to you. Attendees will meet four live bats, including the species of bat the book Stellaluna was based on. A question and answer session will follow. This presentation is open to all ages. Call 810 664-6971 to reserve a seat.

Based in Pontiac, the Organization for Bat Conservation’s mission is to educate people about bats and inspire them to become actively involved in conservation. The group was founded in 1992 offering live bat programs to schools, nature centers and museums.
