Moraine Outdoor Center (North Shore)
Can’t sit out on your porch without getting pestered by mosquitoes? Well, if you can’t, this program is one you do not want to miss. This is your chance to learn all about bats of Pennsylvania and build a bat box of your choice. If you build it they will come!!! Your mosquito problems will be solved because bats can consume tremendous amounts of insects. As a matter of fact, the little brown bat, a very common bat here in Pennsylvania, can eat 600 insects an hour. Pre-registration required. Due to limited supplies and space this program will be limited to the first (10) families and/or participants. Construction costs are $50.00 for the large bat box (250 bat capacity) or $25.00 for the small bat box (80 bat capacity). Bring a battery-powered screwdriver if you have one. To register call the Park Office at (724) 368-8811. Allow 20 minutes to get to Moraine Outdoor Center from 422 exit.
