Big Brown Bat found out of hibernation.
Our Bats enjoy hanging out on and inside “bat pouches.” The pouches provide them with a cozy place to hide, and hang comfortably.
We recently had some fabric donated and one of our talented volunteers Susan, made us some new pouches to accommodate our growing bat numbers. The fabric couldn’t have been more perfect!
Thank you Susan for using your talents to help our wild ones be more comfortable during their stay with us! We really appreciate it!
