Evening Bat Walk
August 24, 2023 @ 8:25 PM - 9:25 PM
Join us on one of our bat walks at dusk by the river in Heaton Mersey using monitors to hear and see the bats out hunting for insects! Book your place on our Eventbrite page.
These evening bat walls will give you the chance to hear and observe the bats using our special bat monitoring equipment. The insects will be out and the bats will be hunting!
The events will last just over an hour, and will take you from a meeting place in Heaton Mersey down to the river. Please wear appropriate shoes for uneven terrain.
The walks are led by volunteers from Sustainable Living in the Heatons. We ask for a voluntary donation of £6 for adults over 18, payable in cash on the night. Please book a place for all adults and children attending.
Our bat walks are always popular and oversubscribed. If you or your party need to cancel your booking, please do so as soon as possible via Eventbrite. If you are unable to cancel it through Eventbrite please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If the event is fully booked please contact email@example.com to go on the waiting list.
Having booked for the bat walk, you will receive more detailed information and meeting details by email a few days before the event. If you need more information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The bat walks are led by volunteers from Sustainable Living in the Heatons, trained by ecologist Jeff Clarke, and with funding from the Stockport Hydro Environmental Challenge Fund to purchase the bat monitors.
