Bat Night at the sanctuary
Saturday, 22 April 2017
6.30 - 8.30pm
Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
93 Briggs Road
Local bat researcher Kirsty Dixon will be giving a short presentation on these amazing and interesting creatures before leading a nighttime walk through the Sanctuary in search of our batty residents.
Our Bat Night will be held at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in the ‘Bush Tucker Shed’ building. When you arrive at Bonorong please park your car in the overflow car park (not the first one you get to but the second car park where the skip bins are) as far up as possible.
The building at the top end of this car park is the Bush Tucker Shed -- there is an access door at the back of the building that you will be able to use when you arrive.
The event will go for 1.5 - 2 hours.
Please bring: Yourself, some warm clothes and sensible shoes! Please note that refreshments are not provided - please plan accordingly.
It's completely free! We think everyone should know more about our batty friends :)
