About 25 members from the Eastern Fraser Valley Young Naturalists Club spent part of their Saturday building bat boxes.

The children, along with parents and other family members, made seven boxes on Feb. 16 which will be installed in a few weeks at a site on Camp River Road and at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve.

Read The Progress in March for a followup story and photos after the seven boxes have been installed.
