Our community bat educational program was established in 2011 to
promote public awareness of the colony of bats inhabiting the Peachland Historic School,
as well as awareness to the value of bats to our ecosystem.
Through corporate sponsorship and fundraising we have been able to purchase and install a camera in the attic roost providing live footage of bat activity upstairs. This is an excellent model of man co-habitating with bats and provides a unique experience that has drawn people locally, regionally and internationally, to our community.
We have taken great strides since 2011. Here are some of our accomplishments:
BEEPS was successful in acquiring a grant for 9 weeks, to employ a university student, to upgrade, expand and facilitate our programs.
This opportunity required a financial commitment of $3,000.00 for BEEPS’ portion of wages and project supplies. These expenses greatly diminished our resources required to continue our programs, replace supplies for Bat Chats, and upgrade/maintain and increase equipment in the attic for the continuation of studies with our Environment Canada partners.
We are humbly seeking your financial support and will provide acknowledgement of your generosity in printed materials of future projects, as well as in related advertising and public relations. Please refer to the attached Corporate Sponsor document for donation options and the recognition you will receive for your assistance in BEEPS initiatives.
We thank you in advance for your consideration of becoming a Corporate Sponsor.
