We take great pride in our accomplishments since our inception in 2011. It is with corporate sponsorship that will allow us to continually move forward with our initiatives.
Please take note of our most notable accomplishments.
Development of Bat Chats - they have become an engaging and interactive program that is offered to 'kids of all ages', twice weekly
throughout the summer.
Watch: BC Annual Bat Counts - in addition to providing stats that confirm the health of our bat colony in
numbers, our bat counts are a tourism draw for locals and visitors alike.
Partnerships -have been created while expanding our programs. This includes partnerships with The District
of Peachland, Peachland Volunteer Fire Brigade, Peachland Sportsman Association, Community Policing, and numerous businesses.
Education & Ecological Protection Society (BEEPS) - was created in 2016 and
has experienced an amazing two years of growth. BEEPS developed the Bat House Interpretive Trail in
partnership with Peachland Rotary Club and the District of Peachland.
Biologist Team - these partnerships have expanded and BEEPS is now included
regionally in bat studies performed by the BC Community Bat Program.
Introduction of Roost Logger and HOBO Temperature Loggers - thesehave been purchased and installed in
the attic to provide data on species identification, hibernation departure
& return dates as well as the correlation between the movement of the colony
within the attic and fluctuations in temperature and humidity.
Created a Community
Bat House Registry - this was createdin partnership with the BC Community Bat Program. The awareness
of the value of bat houses in preserving bat habitat, and in the exclusion of
bats where they are not welcome (ie: your attic), has increased substantially.
