Just in time for Halloween, join TNC's Jacqueline Bilello and Bissell Nature Center volunteers to learn the truth about various bat myths.  Then build a bat box to take home so you can start reaping the benefits of bats in your own backyard. 

Be sure to pre-register so that we are able to plan ahead and have materials for you to build your bat box. Limit one box per family.

This program is limited to 15 families.

The group will meet at the Dr. James K. Bissell Nature Center which is located  within the Grand River Conservation Campus on the Morgan Swamp Preserve .

At nearly 2,000 acres, The Nature Conservancy’s Morgan Swamp Preserve is one of the largest privately protected forested wetlands in Ohio. The swamp is home to an abundance of wetlands including swamps, bogs, beaver ponds and vernal pools. A rich diversity of plants and animals call it home, from the beautiful white calla lily to the tiny four-toed salamander hidden among the vernal pools.
