Apollo Builders ~ 831 246-2424: First general contractor to become certified!

Knox Roofing ~ 831 461-0634 – First business in California to become certified!

Satori Cellars Winery ~ 408-848-5823 – First winery to become certified!

Thank you to Knox Roofing for rescuing this beautiful, healthy, big brown bat from a roofing job in Soquel. The bat was checked for injuries and ability to fly. The homeowner wanted him released on her property, which was where BCCC volunteers released him.

Bats are often injured during roof tear down. If they are in torpor or hibernating, they cannot fly away. The Knox Roofing employee prevented the bat from sustaining injuries by removing him and calling BCCC right away.

Congratulations to Satori Cellars Winery in the heart of the Santa Clara Valley wine region for becoming a certified Bat-Friendly Business! Satori Cellars is the first winery in California to help us spread the word about bat conservation by protecting our environment through green business practices.
