Bats at the museum

01 June 20:30

A talk and walk by local bat expert James Shipman about the life of these amazing creatures.

Did you know bats can live for up to 30 years? James explains where they live, how they fly in the dark, and why they are so important and protected by law. After a short talk, James will help us see and hear several species that emerge at dusk near the museum (weather dependent).

Suitable for age 7 and above.
