Cape Breton Young Naturalists Go “Batty”!


Saturday, October 31, 2020
10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join us Saturday, October 31st from 10am – 12pm at 325 Coady Road, Southwest Margaree (Bobby & Anne Peters’ Farm) for some bat themed activities.

Bats are fascinating, often misunderstood, and ecologically important mammals. Bats are increasingly at risk in Nova Scotia and Canada due to white-nose syndrome. Anything we can do to support their conservation is important.

Join us for:

  • Bat themed craft and kite making for participants and younger siblings.
  • Bobby Peters will help us build bat boxes to create habitat for bats.
    • Each family will be invited to install one of these boxes at their home property.
    • Note: Power and hand tools involved.

Did you know six bat species have been found in Nova Scotia: the little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus), the long-eared bat (Myotis evotis), the eastern pipistrelle (Pipistrellus subflavus), the silver-haired bat (Lasionycteris noctivagans), the red bat (Lasiurus borealis), and the hoary bat (Lasiurus cinereus).


*** Vampire bats are not known to occur in Nova Scotia! ~ Even though it is Halloween! ***


Please note: Due to COVID 19, the number of participants for this event is limited and pre-registration is required. Remember to wear your masks.
