WHAT IS THE SUMMER BAT COUNT? Historically, bats only used trees as summer roosts. But as more and more habitat is lost to development, man-made structures such as buildings, bridges, and bat boxes have become important bat dwellings. 
TheSummer Bat Count involves finding a roost and counting the bats as they exit in the evening.
