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', four times weekly throughout the summer, and scheduled bat chats otherwise.

  • Bat 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. 

  • Community 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.

  • Bat Education & Ecological Protection Society (BEEPS) - was created in 2016 and has experienced an amazing growth since it began. BEEPS developed the Bat House Interpretive Trail in partnership with Peachland Rotary Club and the District of Peachland. 

  • Bat 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 -  these have 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 created in 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.
