A Bat House Workshop
Berkshire Sanctuaries is sponsoring a Bat House Making Workshop on Saturday, March 29, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. It will take place at the Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary in Lenox, Mass. Having bat houses on your property is a way to enjoy observing these useful predators of flying insects (such as mosquitoes) at your own home. Beginner and expert woodworkers are welcome to join Rene Laubach, bat enthusiast, as he demonstrates how to construct a bat house for your property. He will begin the program with a slide show about bats in our area and their natural history. Proper care and placement of your bat house will also be discussed. This program is suitable for children 5 years and up, accompanied by an adult. Registration is required. Register online or call 413-637-0320.
