Welcome to the Village Bat Gallery – Community Art Project
This is an initiative of the Cumberland Bat Project, a research, education and community engagement program collaboration between the Cumberland Community Forest Society and the Comox Valley Conservation Partnership. Materials for this Project have been funded by Elevate
Our goal is to:
– bring community together
– learn about this species at risk in the Cumberland Forest
– raise awareness about, and appreciation for, bats
– bust myths about bats (they get a bad rap!)
– learn about habitat destruction and zoonotic diseases.
– create ART together, but safely from a distance
– create a real world community gallery in the Village of Cumberland as a unique legacy for this interesting time.
