Lansing Park Developers Saving Money On Bats
Park developers in our state capital are looking to the future and mitigating the cost from bats. In a story from the Associated Press, several hundred trees have been cut down at a future park site, in order to prevent nesting by federally protected bat species. Around 350 trees were taken down, as working around the protected species would incur a significant cost. A county official has told the Lansing State Journal that the trees are still on site at the moment because the ground has been too soggy to bring in equipment.
