Build Your Own Bat House

  • the Green Project 2831 Marais St. New Orleans, LA 70130 (map)

Bats are native creatures that act as natural pest controllers, eating thousands of mosquitoes in a single night! Creating habitats for bats in your yard can attract our nocturnal neighbors and give them a safe place to live. Unfortunately, bat populations across the country have suffered due to a decline in natural ecosystems, so this is a great way to help conservation efforts!

At this workshop, you'll learn about bat ecology, benefits of bats, and then we'll assemble bat houses that participants will be able to customize with recycled paint. Please note that bat houses thrive in sunny spots located at least 12 feet above the ground—consider where you would put your bat house, or if it would make a good gift for a family member or neighbor!

Children ages 8+ are welcome to attend for free with an adult (one child per adult admission, please!).

This workshop is followed by the Creating Edible Ecosystems workshop which will also discuss symbiosis between animals, insects, plants and humans.
