Bat Houses for Sale

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.

Smaller bat houses may be purchased on BCI's website for $99.95, but you can get a larger bat house, hand-made by LCC college student volunteers, for an astoundingly low price of $35.00.  Instructions on how to "use" your new bat house will be included.  To purchase one or more bat houses, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

The LCC Biological Society is a student-run club that has been active since Winter 2007.  While students are the primary members, anyone can join in club activities with few exceptions (e.g., non-students are not allowed to ride in college vehicles).  The LCC Biological Society and WHAS have coordinated efforts to bring many well-attended presenters to Longview and to work on various environmental stewardship events.  Proceeds from the sale of the bat houses will be used to support programs, stewardship and outings.  For questions about the LCC Biological Society and to be added to the email list to stay informed of club activities, please contact the faculty advisor, This email address is being protected from spambots.
