Bat Houses Over Rummel Creek

The new Fondren Bridge over Rummel Creek has a structure containing bat houses underneath. The structure was designed by Phil Lindhurst, aka The Bat Man, and could theoretically house up to 2,000 bats. We are hoping to get a colony of bats in the sanctuary to control the insect population.

This photo below shows the bat house structure after it has been mounted underneath the bridge.
