Bat Condo

Wild4Ever, with the help of Metro Parks, Serving Summit County funded the construction of a condominium for a local bat population. The condo was placed on private property in Geauga County and will serve as maternity roost for thousands of big and little brown bats who raise their young together in colonies during the summer. Local bat populations face many survival risks including habitat destruction, pesticide use and white-nose syndrome. White-nose syndrome kills bats during hibernation and is greatly affecting little brown and big brown bat populations in the eastern United States. Providing this bat condominium will assure this local established maternity colony will have a place to raise their young for generations to come.
