On Wednesday 14th August, join us for a fun family bat evening at Argal Lake, and find out about the bats that call the lake home. 

At the start of the evening we will meet at Wild Vibes Café to enjoy some delicious food, do some fun  bat crafts, puzzles and games, before getting to grips with the bat detectors and seeing what we can find. It will involve a short walk to the lake shore and the dam. Batman fancy dress encouraged!

The walk will be led by Senior Countryside Warden for Cornwall Beth Cross, and Sam Smith from Cornwall Bat Group

Argal Lake is a prime location for this particular activity; the lake and its surrounding areas boast a great range of habitats including woodland, open grassland and of course water, giving rise to conditions perfect for many different species of bat – not to mention the beautiful views. The evening therefore promises to be an exciting one for bat lovers; in previous years, five or six different species have cropped up including Daubenton’s, Noctule, Pipistrelle, Soprano Pipistrelle, and the rare Nathusius Pipistrelle. So, why not come along and see which species you can spot?

Please meet at Argal café at 8.30pmEntry to the event is £7 for adults and £5 for children, including hot food or a child's snack from Wild Vibes cafe. Availability is limited, so booking is essential.
