A Bat Walk around Leavesden Country Park
Meet us at Leavesden HIVE for a chat about bats and a quick refreshment before heading out into the park with the bat detectors to discover these magical mammals of the night in their habitat.
We will have bat detectors for you to use and the Park Ranger will be on hand to help identify the bats that we see and explain their important role in the biodiversity of our green spaces.
All ages welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Bookings should include all adults and children attending
Come and Join our fungi guide and discover the variety of toadstools and mushrooms in our green spaces. You may be surprised at the number of different species you can come across, once you take a close look.
