Bat walks and talks

We are happy to do bat talks and walks or just  bat walks or just bat talks to community groups, local authorities and any other interested groups.  We do ask for a donation of usually between £30-£60 depending on what you would like, distance, time involved, how many of us need to be present and how much kit we need to bring with us.

We try our best to carry out all requests but unfortunately during busy times we might not be able to commit to every request.

Information stand

We have an information stand and can bring the stand and man it at events if we are available.  We can also do various children's activities such as bat finger puppets.
