Getting ready to go batty

Third-graders at recess rushed to help Ms. Evers unpack 16 evening primroses that arrived in the mail today. The evening-blooming flowers will go in the bat garden to be planted as part of the B Back Project (to help Bring more Bats, Birds, Bees, Bugs and Butterflies to the Back grounds of Belvedere). The Green Team originally wanted to put up bat houses, but changed the plan to a bat garden after talking with local bat expert Leslie Sturges of the The Save Lucy Campaign. IMG_1302 Ms. Sturges said that the most common bats in our area are the big brown bat and the Eastern red bat. Neither species is likely to use a bat house. The brown bat would prefer a nice cool basement. The red bat roosts in trees.
