Bat House Project

What issue did your Take Action project address?
The issue was the decrease in the the little brown bat population due to white nose syndrome.
What was your Take Action Project? Who did you involve in your project?
We made bat house as our take action project. We involved people in our community that came to our bat presentation at the library, my group, Jenna and Hannah, the workers at Neil's Signs for helping put up the bat houses, public workers for meeting with us on where we should place our bat houses on the Batz Property and the Girl Scouts at the town sleepover that played our informational bat game.
What were the results? How did it affect the community?
We have three bat houses that are hung and ready for bats to come live in. We also made an educational presentation that can teach children and adults about bats. It affected the community by bring more bats to the town. This helped the farms keep away the insects from their crop.
What did you learn from the experience?
I learned that on simple project could help many living things. Also I learned about bats, how they live and the challenges they face.
