hollow trees, snags,under loose bark, under rocks, in

 

rock outcrops, wetlands, quarries, tunnels, in buildings

 

(attics, barns, outbuildings), under bridges, in caves and

 

mines Winters in caves and abandoned mines. Feeds

How can you help:

 

- Minimize removal of snag (dead or deteriorating) and cavity (hollow or excavated) trees to

 

ensure you don’t unknowingly harm bats that are using the tree as habitat.

 

- Clearing of trees should be conducted between Sept 1 and April 30.

 

- Build a bat box.
