White Nose Syndrome (WNS) is a disease that is affecting bat populations around the country. It is a fungal disease that grows on skin tissues and wakes the bats up during hibernation causing them to use up valuable fat stores and killing them.

The bat house you will be building at our event is a one chamber house that will fit over 300 bats in it. We have put a base coat of stain on it but you are free to paint it whatever color you want.
