Bat Walk and Talk in Ruskin Park, 4th August

7:45pm to 9pm Saturday 4th August 2012.

Join Embrace Cooperation Ltd and Friends of Carnegie Library on a gentle stroll around Ruskin Park. Come along and learn about these fascinating creatures, and find out how many of the seventeen different species living in Britain we will find. Also learn where, when and how to watch and identify these flying mammals from a bat expert.

A few bat detectors will be available for people to use but there will not be enough for everyone so if you do have your own please bring it.

All participants will be asked to complete a feedback form after this nature walk.

The walk is limited to 30 participants maximum.

For more information please phone the Embrace office 02072749450.

Ruskin Park is located between Camberwell, Brixton and Herne Hill. The park gets its name from John Ruskin, the famous artist, writer and social campaigner, who lived nearby from 1823 to 1871. Ruskin Park was officially opened to the public on 2 February 1907.
