Our Mission

The Purpose of the Bat Association of MSU (BAM) is to provide space for students to learn about bats and to help the community better understand and appreciate the important role bats play in our ecosystem.

The MSU Bat Exclusion Team is looking for volunteers to help with bat exclusions around Lansing!

About Us

The Bat Association of MSU

BAM (The Bat Association of MSU) is registered student group at Michigan State University in Lansing, Michigan. BAM started in 2016 with the goal of installing bat houses on campus and educating the community about the importance of bats.

As a group we support the One Health model, understanding that the health of our community is intimately linked with the health of our ecosystem. One Health is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and environment.

Our group is comprised of students that reflect this value, including students from the departments of veterinary medicine, fisheries and wildlife, horticulture and zoology all working together to better understand one of Michigan's most amazing and important native animals.
