WKS810: Bat House
Class Number 1738-114539

Expand on your woodworking skills while helping an endangered species!
Having a bat living nearby is beneficial to your whole neighborhood. One bat can eat over a thousand bugs in one night, providing a natural pest control.

During this workshop, you will learn the proper construction of a bat house, paint/stain choices, and also the best installation practices for different climate regions.

This is a 4-hour workshop. Upon completion, you will have a home for bats, ready to be installed for our furry friends.

WOD101 is required before you take this workshop.
