Thank You

Lubee would like to thank the Grace and Al Family Trust for their generous support of this Education Center.

History

BOB, our original Bat Observation Building, was built in 1990 and housed our first bats. Over the years, the majority of our animals were moved into the main Core building resulting in a gradual decline in use of BOB, although the structure was still in good condition. After many discussions, the decision was made to transform the building into an open-air education center full of signs, displays, and interactives.

Partners

We are extremely grateful to P R Construction for their generosity in deconstructing the inner office and all animal enclosures (a tremendous amount of work) in only 8 days. AMAZING! They have done this as a charitable act and we highly recommend them for any residential or commercial projects you may have. Please check out their website and services
