The Victoria Day Long weekend is Canada’s unofficial invitation to get outside and enjoy all the natural splendor this country has to offer. Unfortunately, it’s a hard fact that Canadians – especially children and youth – are spending far too much time indoors, glued to computer monitors, televisions and gaming systems. This alienation from nature and wild spaces has become so prevalent that author Richard Louv has identified it as a medical malady: he calls it “nature deficit disorder.”

This long weekend, we invite you to deepen your connection with nature by downloading our easy, step-by-step instructions on how to build your own bat box. You’ll be playing an active role in our initiative designed to improve our bat populations – a species vital to controlling mosquitos on a long weekend in May!

Your gift will go directly to help support programs designed to conserve and inspire the conservation of Canada’s wildlife and habitats for the use and enjoyment of all. Thanks for your donation, and enjoy building your bat box.
