Cave & Mine Gating Workshops


Since 1998, BCI has been co-sponsoring cave and mine gating workshops with the American Cave Conservation Association, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, California Department of Conservation, and many others. Evening lectures discuss gate designs relative to varied situations and bat species, how to recruit volunteers and partners, selection of materials and equipment, safety, and much more. By day, participants get hands-on experience measuring, moving, cutting, and welding steel to construct bat-friendly gates built at nearby caves or mines.

For information on future gating workshops, or to collaborate on co-sponsoring a gating workshop, contact us at caves@batcon.org, or mines@batcon.org, 512-327-9721.
