Let's talk about bats. They are arriving in Halloween cards, flying around on streamers, and maybe even bringing you candy. The real creatures often get a bad rap, but they are possibly my favorite environmental contributor: they eat bugs!!!
Those are cute little nest boxes that you can put up on your house (shown above under my dad's rafter); they are nice and discreet, and super helpful for your eco-system. You can find them for purchase on Amazon--bonus: kids will love putting this up!
To help foster your love of bats, here are a few fun bat crafts:

Go forth and give a little bat love, friends!
