About the event

Children are welcome on this event. We will use bat detectors in the woods to see which types of bat are flying near to us. Then we will walk a short way to Iron Latch Meadow to look for glow worms.

The meadow is rutted and can be difficult to negotiate in the dark, so please wear sturdy footwear. The event will last approx. two hours.

Please register your interest in advance for further information.
