The Kootenay Community Bat Project was established in 2004 to raise awareness about bats in southeastern BC and work with local residents who have bats in buildings.


“I never would have thought I'd ever be involved in a conservation program like this, but it's the right thing to do and I've got a whole new appreciation for these bats and how important they are.”

Bat House Workshop, Radium Hot Springs, Nov. 29

Do your part for bat conservation by building a bat-house on your property. Whether you are trying to evict bats from a building or encourage bats to roost nearby, a bat-house is a great habitat feature to add. This workshop, hosted by the Kootenay Community Bat Project and Wildsight Invermere, is a wonderful opportunity to build a bat-house. All the materials will be pre-cut and supplied - just bring a drill, caulking gun, and staple gun if you have one.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, November 29 at Radium Seniors Hall in Radium Hot Springs. You can build a bat-house as well as learn more about these amazing creatures of the night. 

You must pre-register for this event by contacting [email protected] or 250-341-6898.
