Making a Bat House
Making a Bat House

When the Longhursts of Lillooet, discovered bats living in their roof one summer, they decided that once the bats had migrated to warmer climes their access would be sealed off. While the family wasn’t happy sharing their home with bats, they felt that it wasn’t quite fair to leave the flying mammals homeless. So the Longhursts decided to build a bat house. Photo: Ken Oakes
