Bat walk Sunday 29th August 2015: NWT Blessington

Would you like to learn a little bit more about Ireland’s bat species? If so then come along to the Native Woodland Trust bat walk on 29th August at the NWT Blessington Reserve.
The Native Woodland Trust is an environmental charity dedicated to the protection of Ireland’s rare native and ancient woodland. The Trust achieves this by setting up woodland reserves around the country. This reserves network allows the Trust to protect existing woodland as well as plant new native woodland for the future. Part of the work we do involves running educational and fun events for our members and the public to encourage more people to use their local woodlands.

On this bat walk we will be learning a little bit about the bats you could find in Ireland, and we will be listening to their calls using bat detectors to find out what bats are flying above us on the Native Woodland Trust’s Blessington Reserve. Remember to dress for the cooler evening weather!

The meeting point for this event will be at the ESB car park off the N81 just south of the reserve. For a map and further details please check our website www.nativewoodlandtrust.ie or the events section of our Facebook page. All are welcome. The event is free for members with a suggested donation of €4 for non-members.

Meeting Point: ESB car park on N81 south of the reserve.
Meeting Time: 9pm – 10:30pm.
