How to build a bat box and improve your garden for bats
May 21 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
How to build a bat box and improve your garden for bats

This talk and mini workshop is hosted by Limerick Bat Group and will be led by Sean Hartigan.

We will meet at Castletroy Town Park, Limerick and have a chat there. Sean will demonstrate how to build a bat box and there will be a small number of pre-cut bat boxes to be put together on the day.

Bats are an important part of the ecosystem and we will discuss why they are important and how to improve your garden for bats and biodiversity. This is a family orientated event but all minors must be accompanied by an adult.

We will have limited numbers of bat boxes for this talk so booking is a must, however a ticket does not equate to a bat box and the number of boxes available will depend on availability of materials on the day.

Please ensure you:

  • bring torches
  • wear appropriate clothing; and
  • keep an eye on the event page in case any event changes need to occur.

You can email us at limerickbatgroup@gmail.com with any queries.

Book one ticket per up to 4 people please.  Bookings can be made here: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/how-to-build-a-bat-box-and-improve-your-garden-for-bats-tickets-334663295927?aff=efbeventtix
