Paul suggested this forum is the place to promote our favorite charities.  Mine is Bat Conservation International!

Their website has lots of information and pictures of adorable bats!






Please join and support bats everywhere!   http://www.batcon.org/

Do you have any suggestions on building bat houses? I want to put some up in the yard eventually.
