Bat Books

AS PART OF OUR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, the SD Bat Working Group has organized an educational fund to purchase library books for public elementary schools throughout South Dakota. This 12-book series is published by ABDO Publishing, MN and is bound for library use.

DONATIONS ARE TAX-DEDUCTABLE! - Elementary schools & Libraries have benefitted from your efforts, but there are lots of Elementary schools left to go.All money will be spent for the purchase of books (not on shipping or administration fees). Donors wishing to sponsor a complete book-set can specify the recipient school if they so wish (Publisher: $99.00 per set).

A HEART-FELT THANK YOU GOES OUT TO ALL OF OUR SUPPORTERS

Questions about donations:
Brad Phillips (605-673-4707)
Questions about schools: Joel Tigner (605-390-2061)

SD Game, Fish, & Parks Wildlife Diversity Small Grant Program recently provided funding toward the purchase of an additional 58 sets of books. [read our letter of thanks to Governor Rounds] If your school has not yet received a set of the books, please contact us so that we can get you on our waiting list. If you have a child in a public elementary school in South Dakota and would like to obtain a set of these books for your child's school library, please provide us with the school's name, school's address, current enrollment (# students), contact person, and telephone number for the school. There is no charge of any sort for the books. We will target schools in communities where it has been difficult to identify sponsors for the books. (see extensive list below)
