Everyone welcome for the presentation; please register whether you will be building or not.

In this workshop, you’ll get a chance to learn many fun facts about bats, why they are so important to humans, Alberta bat conservation work, and how you can help!

The workshop will include both a presentation and, if you like, building a bat house for you and/or your family to take home. For this workshop you need to bring (if you have one, but we can share and there will bring extras!!):

  • a hammer
  • a staple gun
  • #2 Robertson screw driver or drill with 1/8 inch drill bit

Cost of materials for each bat house: $25.00.

  • One bat house/family please.

Cost to attend and listen to the presentation: a donation to the Alberta Wilderness Assciation.

Leading the workshop will be Brittany Verbeek, a Conservation Specialist with the Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA). Brittany’s background is in biology and how humans interact and impact their environment. Her AWA work focuses on land, water, and wildlife conservation
