Three bat boxes were installed around Peters Township on April 8, 2021. These boxes create a habitat for bats to roost away from buildings, attics, and chimneys. Dedicated roosting areas and shelters are key to co-habitation between bats and humans.
Unfortunately, White-Nose Syndrome is decimating our bat populations. Shelters like these help bats survive.
The boxes were installed at Fire Station #1, Peters Lake Park, and near the Peters Township Community Recreation Center.
