On Tuesday the 31st of May at 8.45 pm we will have a bat walk in Rushmore Park, part of the Cranborne Chase AONB, with Jon Hayter, Estate Operations Manager and Roland Hughes, Chase & Chalke Ranger and Volunteer Coordinator. Sunset on that day will be at 9.10 pm so bring a torch! We will finish at about 10.45, it's a bit late for young people but most will be on half term so we hope you can make it!
We will slowly walk in and around Larmer Tree gardens and the woodland that surrounds them, stopping and listening. Jon will throw in a bit of history about the gardens, Pitt Rivers and the management of the estate as well as lots of bat facts.
As usual, we will have limited numbers to guarantee that everybody can listen to the guides. Young people <21 years old or small groups comprising young people <21 years old will be given priority but we will fill in the spaces with young-at-heart of any age if there are gaps.
Also as usual, all people under 21 years old and our members come free to our normal events; if you are above 21 years old and not a member, you can become one by paying £10 per year. If you would like to attend but are unsure about becoming a member, please pay £2 per event per person above 21 years old.
Young Nature Watch (YNW) is a branch of the Tisbury and District Natural History Society (TNHS). Our first event was on July 2020.
YNW is free for under-21s! Young people always have priority at any of our activities but accompanying adults are required for under-12s. Whenever possible, we will aim to split attendants into three different groups:
- Families with young children
- Teenagers only
- Young-at-heart of all ages
For adults, annual membership for the TNHS (£10) or a £2 fee per event (for non-members) is due.
YNW activities are organised by Inés Lopez-Doriga and Izzy Fry (find out more about how it all started in Focus, p.27).
