Bat Houses for Sale
- Last Updated: Saturday, 15 February 2014 14:53
Inspired by Andrew Emlen's spring program on bats, the Lower Columbia College Biological Society is selling a limited number of single-chamber bat houses as a fundraiser. These houses have been assembled by students using outdoor-grade plywood and furring strips following the specifications provided by Bat Conservation International (BCI) for the Pacific Northwest climate (i.e., they have been painted black and do not have a ventilation gap; see photos below). Each house measures approximately 27.5" H X 24" W X 1.75" D (70 cm H X 61 cm W X 4 cm D), with the roost chamber being .75" (18 mm) deep.
