Come and see if we can find, identify and listen to bats living in and around Sydney Gardens and the Kennet & Avon Canal, in a session led by Laura Mullholland, Ecologist with the Canal & River Trust.

We will learn about different species of bats, their habitat, and how we are working to protect them in Sydney Gardens, Bath.
