Bat Week is a great time to do something positive for bats. Build bat roosting boxes, pull weeds of out of bat habitat, plant native vegetation that attracts bats, create bat art, and ask your governor to proclaim your state’s Bat Week to help bats. Host a Bat Week Party or other special event to get others excited about bats. You can feature bat-themed games, foods and drinks that are made possible by bats, and/or costume contests, – anything that highlights our amazing bats!
Spread the word! Use your platforms on social media (#BatWeek) and share your enthusiasm for bats during Bat Week to help them get great attention at a time of year that they are often seen as scary, not super! The Bat Week social media tool kit can help you find the right messages and Bat Week Facebook and Twitter pages are a great way to share photos, too!
Be creative! Get involved! Be a Bat Hero!
