Bat House Workshop

Hurstville Interpretive Center, Jackson County

Friday, October 9, 2020

Bats don’t just live in caves! In summer, bats roost in trees, under bridges, old buildings, and hollow trees. A bat house can mimic a tight place for a bat to roost and use as a nursery. A workshop is being held on Friday, October 9 at the Hurstville Interpretive Center for participants to build a bat house to hang in their yard. Bat house kits can also be picked up to build at home. Cost is $25, this covers all materials. Workshop will be held outdoors, please dress accordingly. And to keep group sizes small, participants can sign up for a time slot between 1:00-4:00 pm. Please contact Jackson County Conservation at (563) 652-3783 to register or for more information. Registration deadline is Sept 29. The Hurstville Interpretive Center is located 1 mile north of Maquoketa off Highway 61.
