Bat House Workshop with Missoula Urban Demonstration Project

Date and Time TBD

Missoula Urban Demonstration Project | 1527 Wyoming St. Missoula MT

Price: TBD

We’re trying out a new kind of workshop with the Missoula Urban Demonstration Project (MUD) this fall! Birds are great, but we think bats need more love. Please join the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and MUD as we give a presentation on native Montana bats, their role in our ecosystem, and how we can provide the habitat spaces they need. We’ll be building bat houses for participants to paint and take home too! Don’t miss this great opportunity. Spots limited to 16 participants. Date, time, and price will be determined soon.
