BAT HOUSE BUILDING & PAINTING WORKSHOP

Bat House Building & Painting Workshop

Join us On October 24th, at Art Center, to build and paint your very own bat house!

You might wonder why you need to build a bat house. Why can't the bats just find a nice tree? That is the challenge for many bat species as forests are cleared. Ideally they would live in a natural home but we build bat houses to help those who can't find space in a forest.

Did you know?

  • According to Bat Conservation International, one little brown bat can eat 60 medium-sized moths or over 1,000 mosquito-sized insects in one night!

  • In many ecosystems, they play a key role in pollinating plants.

    These are just a few of the reasons why you should come paint a bat house (using eastern white pine) and learn about why bats are important to our ecosystem from local naturalist, Payton Carroll.

Payton will begin the evening with a presentation about the important impact that bats have on our ecosystem, and share how building bat houses can make a difference. Payton has worked as a naturalist for the Appalachian Mountain Club and as an intern with the DEC. In addition to your hand-crafted bat house, you are sure to leave with many fun bat facts!

Space is limited. All participants must pre-register.

Date: Thursday, October 24

Time: 6-8:00 pm

Cost: $45 per house (small groups of 2-3 people are welcome to work on one house together) ONLY ONE PASS IS NECESSARY FOR SMALL GROUPS.

Open to ages: All ages (children under 15 must be accompanied by adult)

Mother’s Day Yoga and Art Workshop
Presented by Flower City Yoga and Art Center of Rochester

Participants will begin at Flower City Yoga or Art Center, and walk to the neighboring location after a 45-minute session. A notification email will be sent days before the event, alerting participants of their starting point.

Creating art with your child promotes a deeper connection and understanding….plus it’s fun! Mothers and children will come to Art center to engage in a mixed-media activity, and take away a memorable collaborative work of art.

Through our yoga practice, we will also deepen that special connection between you and your child. Together, we will create a dedicated time and space, just to breathe, move and have fun! We will play around with partner poses, incorporate fun games and songs, participate in breathing exercises and finish with a cuddly Sivasana (resting pose).

Where: Flower City Yoga, 657 Titus Ave and Art Center of Rochester, 563 Titus Ave
When: Saturday, May 11th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm
Open to: Moms with a child (between the ages of 5-12)

Registration is limited to 12 pairs. When you register, you will see 2 time slots to choose from (either 2:00-3:00pm or 3:00-4:00pm). Each group will consist of 6 mom/child pairs. One group will start at Flower City Yoga, while the other group will start at Arts Center of Rochester, and then we will swap.
