Join us for an informative talk and walk into the fascinating world of bats! You'll learn about their biology, lifecycles, feeding habits, and why they are crucial to our ecosystem. As dusk falls, we'll venture out into the park equipped with bat detectors to try and spot some bats in flight and listen to their echolocation.
