A Bat Abode

Gary McCracken and Emma Wilcox (FWF) have received a Community Engagement Incentive Grant  to build a bat house over in the UT Gardens.  The house will be large, about the size of a faculty office, and raised on stilts.  McCracken hopes to attract Mexican free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasiliensis) to the house.  These insectivorous bats often roost in large numbers.
