Bats are fascinating creatures that navigate the world using a built-in sonar system. And guess what? They live in our backyard!

Join us at Claremont Nature Centre for a night of adventure. Enjoy an indoor presentation, then venture out on an evening nature walk as citizen scientists to view and listen to bats through a special bat detector.
