Family Friendly Farm Experiences:
Bat Box Workshop; Saturday Oct., 16th, 12-3pm
Price: $20/ $15 member
Join us for an afternoon learning about our favorite evening pollinators, and build your own bat habitat for your backyard! Guests will be led through step by step building instructions for their own bat box, ending with a bat and pollinator talk at 2pm, with our partners from the University of Akron Field Station.
Bat boxes provide a safe space for bats to breed and hibernate, and help deter them from roosting in buildings and homes. Bats make great backyard guests as they are excellent pollinators and provide incredible mosquito and pest control. Boxes will be constructed with step-by-step instructions and pre-cut pieces, all tools will be provided. Adult supervision required for ages 11-17. Workshop tickets include a free admission per ticket, and attendees are welcome to drop in to the class anytime between 12 and 2pm. The project will take roughly 20-30 minutes to complete.
