The Mississippi Bat Working Group is maintaining a database for all bat houses placed in Mississippi. We receive a lot of our information on bat house placement by word of mouth, so we are hoping to get help from volunteers willing to construct bat houses so the group can target specific areas in need throughout Mississippi. The houses constructed by volunteers will be placed throughout Mississippi. A goal is to have each county (82) in Mississippi represented in the database. The bat houses will be placed on state, Federal, and private lands as needed.
We would like to discuss the bat house design with volunteers before they begin construction. Bat houses have specific dimensions that work best. Volunteers will be constructing the bat houses from their own purchased materials. There aren't any limitations on who can volunteer
Parents and children are invited and encouraged to get involved.
