I'd start by calling your power company. Sometimes they sell used poles. You could also ask on Freecycle or look on Craig's List. Do you have a tree you could use as a mount? You could also mount it on an exterior house wall or shed.

@bhart90 I like Karen's ideas for mounting. Please consider any telephone or electric pole will have been heavily treated at one time. Although they usually only get rid of old poles, some of those chemicals could still be in the wood. Many blessings for the completion of all your projects.

Your Co-op may have some poles too.

The reason it's so hard to lose weight when you get up in age is because your body and your fat have become good friends.

A fence company would have both metal and wooden posts. Here is some info from Batcon that you will need to give the bats a good start, including the best time to install your bat house to attract a colony.
