Go Batty

This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 17th Aug 2018

The Lee Valley park is a fantastic place for wildlife but some of its inhabitants are easier to find than others. The varied habitats and large expanses of water attract large numbers of bats to the park but as they only come out after dark not many people are around to see them.

Join Lee Valley Regional Park staff and the Essex Bat Group for an evening dedicated to these fascinating animals.

The evening will start with an illustrated talk to discover more about bats as well as the threats they face and some of the work the bat group is doing to help protect and conserve them throughout Essex. Once it is dark enough we will then head out for a short walk into River Lee Country Park. We will learn how to use bat detectors to find and even identify the different species of bat and will hopefully get a chance to see and hear bats feeding in the wild.

Cost: £5.50
