About the Program
DTE Energy’s Kingsford Service Center is located in Michigan. The team manages the site to maintain a healthy population of local bat species by the implementation of bat boxes. Habitats found on the site include a grassland and pollinator gardens, surrounded by wooded forest and a water source.

Practices and Impacts
  • The team monitors the installed bat boxes in the spring and summer for the presence of bat species to ensure female bats have a safe place to raise their young and increase declining bat populations.
  • The bat boxes were installed in areas that provide sufficient habitat needs for local bat species.
  • The team conducts regular team meetings and quarterly wildlife meetings to track progress and ensure the project is successful.
