Free Evening Bat Walk

September 7 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Want to get closer to our local bats?

Free Evening Bat Walks with Heaton Mersey Village Conservation Group and Sustainable Living in the Heatons

Book via our Eventbrite page!

Two guides will take out parties of up to six people and will use our bat detection monitor to identify what you are seeing.

Meet in the Heaton Mersey Bowl, off Station Road about twenty minutes before sunset, time and exact meeting place to be confirmed nearer the time. The walk should take about an hour.

Good footwear and outer clothing will be required. The conditions will vary as we may move off established paths to follow signals from the hunting bats above us. We are yet to risk assess the route for accessibility issues but will have more information in mid-August. Those under 16 years should be accompanied by an adult.

Any questions? Call Mel Godfrey 0781 005 3743 or email info@slheatons.org

If you book a ticket(s) and then need to cancel, please contact info@slheatons.org immediately so that others can take your place.

This is a collaboration between Sustainable Living in the Heatons and Heaton Mersey Village Conservation Group to increase awareness and appreciation of our local bats and other fauna. Expertise in designing the walks comes from a local ecologist Jeff Clarke, with the help of a grant from Stockport Hydro Environmental Challenge Fund.
