Council and the Australian Bat Society invite you to come along to Whittlesea’s Australian Bat Night. Robert Bender, bat expert and manager of a number of bat box projects in Melbourne will talk about the fascinating world of bats including, their diversity in Whittlesea, vital ecological role, and how we can live with them and protect their habitat.
Following the presentation, we will go on a short walk amongst the surrounding River Red Gums to see if we can locate them with hand held bat detectors!
This event is designed for people of all ages with schools and local community groups welcome to come along as well. A door prize of a bat box will be available to take home for one lucky person.
On the night you need to bring a jumper in case it is cold, sturdy shoes for the sort walk and a torch.
A light supper will be provided and so it is essential that you book in advance to secure your place and catering purposes.
For further information about the event please call the Sustainability Planning team on 9217 2025.
