Create a batty neighbourhood this half term!
Help create a batty neighbourhood this half term! In celebration of ‘Wild About Gardens Week’, come and celebrate all things Bat related at the Dorothy Clive Garden ‘Wild About Bats’ event. This educational event encourages families to enjoy ‘batty’ art and crafts with the Shropshire Wildlife Trust; a Bat themed trail around the garden with interesting Bat related facts and figures; Making Bat Boxes to take home; Bat echo location with the Staffordshire Bat Society and a special Bat walk to discover micro-habitats and hibernation locations with the Staffordshire Mammal Society.
With Bats currently under threat in the U.K., this event is aimed to encourage families to look at new ways to attract bats into their own gardens and learn how to encourage others to create a ‘batty neighbourhood’. The event takes place during RHS Wild About Gardens Week and National Mammal Week on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October 2016 from 10am to 4pm. Families can enjoy also enjoy light refreshments in the garden tearoom. Admission is at the special fundraising price of £3.50 for adults, £2.00 for children 5-7 years and free for members of the Dorothy Clive Garden and children 0-4 years.
