PROJECTor Bat

PROJECTor Bat – a joint venture between the bats that live in our area and you, the members of Headwaters Nature. Headwaters Nature needs a new digital PROJECTor (AKA projector) and bats need places to roost. For the cost of $10.00 you get a chance to get this bat roosting box* and at the same time contribute to the purchase of a new club digital projector. It’s a win-win situation even if you don’t end up with the bat roosting box. Someone will get the box — a win for the bats and we’ll be closer to getting the much needed projector — a win for Headwaters Nature! *Thanks to Rob B for donating the bat roosting box
