Bat Houses at Shaw Park

Grace enjoys spending time at Shaw Park with her family, kayaking and swimming, but does not enjoy all of the mosquitos and bugs at the park. Grace wanted to find a way to reduce the insect population, and knowing that bat populations are declining and that they feast on insects, Grace researched bat habitats. With the Gorham Rec Department and a local construction company, Grace created habitats for bats and improved the quality of Shaw Park.
