This event will kick off at 4PM sharp on Sunday 22 January.
We would love for Inner West ACF members, their family, friends & anyone interested in bats to come along on this journey.
The discussion will introduce the bats of the local area as well as info about bats of NSW and more globally, and then we will be as quiet as possible as we do a 10 minute trek into the bush at Wolli Creek Reserve to watch the Grey-Headed Flying Fox bats.
The Bat chat will be led by Inner West ACF group member Sarah Kienker, a keen conservationist, marine scientist and project manager with National Parks and Wildlife Services.
We aim to watch the bats' nightly flight from the picnic benches at the reserve; snacks will be available. Bring binoculars, walking shoes with good grip and water.
If you can't stay for the bats flight from the reserve the event will be suitable for you to leave any time after 5pm.
